Climate risks and adaptation in Asian coastal megacities: a synthesis report

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

The main objective of this report is to strengthen understanding of climate-related risks and impacts in coastal megacities in developing countries using case studies of three cities that are different in their climate, hydrological, and socioeconomic characteristics. Specifically, it draws on an in-depth analysis of climate risks and impacts in Bangkok, Manila, and Ho Chi Minh City to highlight to national and municipal decision makers: (a) the scale of climate-related impacts and vulnerabilities at the city level, (b) estimates of associated damage costs, and (c) potential adaptation options. While the report focuses on three cities in East Asia, the policy implications resulting from the comparative analysis of these cities has broader relevance for assessing climate risks and identifying adaptation options in other coastal areas.
