They have a very large river network so, when sea levels rise it will flood as they are not very high above ground.

Also, water expands on heating and it has a special name which i cant remmeber.

So, due to its low lying land and vast river netwok (its rivers are very wide) it floods easily.

Urban areas will become undewrwater along with deaths and less crops will be grown.

also the water carriees a lot of bacteria
