Abstract

401 Sea Level Rise Male' Declaration on Global Warming and Sea Level Rise Environmental issues facing the world today clearly demonstrate that organisms and all the elements of nature including land, water, and air cannot be exploited without far-reaching implications for the earth and its environment. It has been proved more conclusively than at any other time in history that the welfare of mankind is inextricably linked to the state of the environment. It has also been established that atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases have increased over the last two centuries. These increases are seriously threatening to cause climate change, global warming, and sea-level rise, which have become common concerns of mankind. There is now a broad scientific consensus that the global mean temperature could rise approximately by 1°-2° Centigrade by the year 2030. It is predicted that even if the increases in atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases were to be brought to a standstill immediately, however unrealistic that may be, the global temperature and sea level would continue to rise for decades to come. Although the entire world would be adversely affected by these processes, low-lying, small, coastal, and island states will face
