Caption: Floating houses in The Netherlands. 50% of The Netherlands lies below sea level. Climate change is leading to both sea level rise and increased flooding, both of which threaten properties. Floating houses are one solution, as they rise and fall with altering water levels. Ijburg, a suburb of Amsterdam is the floating house capital, with increasing numbers of floating houses being constructed.
