By 2100, the overall level of the Mediterranean could rise between 3–61 cm as a result of the effects of climate change This could have adverse effects on populations across the Mediterranean: 
Rising sea levels will submerge parts of Malta. Rising sea levels will also mean rising salt water levels in Malta’s groundwater supply and reduce the availability of drinking water
A 30 cm (12 in) rise in sea level would flood 200 square kilometers of the Nile Delta, displacing over 500,000 Egyptians.
