Many species face increased risk of extinction due to climate change during this century and centuries to come. This is especially true as climate change interacts with other stressors.

Marine organisms will face progressively lower oxygen levels and high rates and magnitudes of ocean acidification, with associated risks exacerbated by more water temperature extremes. Coral reefs and polar ecosystems are highly vulnerable. Coastal systems and low-lying areas are at risk from sea-level rise, which will continue for centuries even if the global mean temperature is stabilized (IPCC, 2014a). The mega-deltas, such as Shanghai, Dhaka, and Kolkata, are particularly vulnerable, with very large and dense population characteristics in each city.
