On 21 September 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Without enough sand arriving to maintain themselves, deltas are eroding, bringing worsening flooding and land loss. Sand mining from rivers is depriving many low-lying Asian deltas of the sediment they need to maintain themselves, raising the risk of worsening land loss to sea level rise, researchers say. Combined with losses of soil-holding mangroves and accelerating groundwater extraction, which can lead to land sinking, the mining is increasing climate-related threats for those living in low-lying coastal areas, they said.
