This report presents a framework to assess risks associated with energy security, water scarcity, and climate change including more frequent and intense floods, droughts, storms, and precipitation, for the real estate sector in Southeast Asia. It also discusses financial opportunities in the region’s growing green building market.

It considers current and planned commercial office buildings in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, with a particular focus on the Indian market given the large size of its real estate market and data availability. Its lessons and risk framework are aimed to be applied and adapted to other countries and building types.
