Sapoty Brook, Main Arm.

Here are some suggestions for post-climate development.

Any further infrastructure development below ten metres above sea level should be suspended until long-term global action to reverse sea-level rise is implemented.

Any development that is done should have a construction energy requirement of 25 per cent renewable energy increasing by ten per cent every five years.

Instead of trying to stop coastal developers, action should focus on establishing a very large wildlife sanctuary above the maximum melt rise of about 70m above current sea level. This should include transfer of all coastal species to that altitude. Sale of coastal land to ignorant developers should be done to maximise profits for use in establishing the sanctuary. The sanctuary should be established with a 10,000-year timeframe in mind.
