The estimated global Sea Level increase rate is unchanged 0.32 cm annually since 1993. The increase between 1880 and 1993 is set at 14.00 cm. This adds up to a total Sea Level rise from 1880 to 2014 at 20.72 cm – this figure is used in ClimatePositions.
See the development of Sea Level 1960-2014 in the diagram (the 1880-level is set at 0). The national climate debt in ClimatePositions increases along with the rising Sea Level. Here is one example: Indonesia’s climate debt increased from $61 per capita to $62 (or (or $237 million increase of the total Indonesian climate debt).
