Mega-stress for mega-cities: a climate vulnerability ranking of major coastal cities in Asia

Source(s):  World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF)

This report highlights the most significant climate change impacts that will affect some of Asia’s largest metropolitan areas including Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam), Bangkok (Thailand), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Shanghai (China), Hong Kong (China), Dhaka (Bangladesh), Calcutta (India), Jakarta (Indonesia), Manila (Philippines), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), and Singapore (Republic of Singapore). It also attempts to identify some of the most feasible and economical near-term adaptation options for these areas and suggests some constructive policy recommendations.

The report can be used by governments and all other relevant stakeholders as a catalyst for further discussions on the issue of climate change in the region, deciding where additional research is needed, and what the appropriate polices should be.
