dublin has been included in a list of global cities that will suffer first from rising sea levels.
In total, over 226 million people live across these 36 cities, with these locations already being affected regularly by flooding and rising sea levels.
The study also shows what areas of Dublin, and other major cities, would be underwater if sea levels rise by 1.5 metres and a temperature increase of 3 degrees.

Dublin ranks 23rd on the list, ahead of Honolulu and behind New Orleans.
In Dublin the main tourist attractions set to be heavily affected by rising sea levels are North Bull Island, Great South Wall and the EPIC Irish Emigration Museum.
Other areas of Dublin that would be heavily affected by rising sea levels include large areas of Ringsend and Sandymount on the south side and Portmarnock, Howth and Malahide affected on the north side of the Liffey.
A 1.5 metre sea level increase is likely to happen in the next 80 years, according to TheSwiftest.com.
But if greenhouse gas emissions don’t reduce, sea levels could rise by as much as 2.5 metres by 2100.
If that sea-level rise was to occur, North Bull Island would virtually be entirely underwater while the Ringsend to Sandymount would also be almost entirely flooded.
The research used the tool Euromonitor to identify “36 of the most visited cities in the world that will be affected by sea-level rise.”
They then ranked the 36 cities by population that will suffer the greatest level of displacement with over 226 million people directly affected by rising sea levels in the years ahead.
