Rising Sea Level and Coastal Erosion in Cahuita, Costa Rica | #WorldWeWant

Cahuita, an Afro-Caribbean community on the coast of Limón, Costa Rica, faces sea level rise that causes erosion and salinization of water sources, threatening the wellbeing and health of communities. For a community dependent on fishing, Raquel describes how the local ecosystem is affected by the uncertainty of the seasons, drought, loss of corals and fisheries, and loss of ancestral land due to coastal erosion. #ElPlanetaQueQueremos
