Urbanising Thailand: Implications for climate vulnerability assessments

This report focuses on the dynamics of urbanisation and climate change risks, and on the linkages between urbanisation, climate change and emerging patterns of urban poverty and vulnerability. It provides new and key insights, serving as a comprehensive background foundation for further research on urban climate vulnerability and resilience. Rapid physical
and social transformations are taking place in Southeast Asia countries, yet the implications contributing to vulnerability are less well-understood.

The authors propose the following four key action areas for redirecting urbanisation towards environmental sustainability and climate change resilience (p. 50-51):

  1. building public awareness and participation;
  2. addressing land use planning;
  3. mobility;
  4. housing and shelter;
  5. public space.
