This assessment analyses the vulnerability of the ecosystem, infrastructure, and socio-economic conditions in Hakha Township located in Chin State, Myanmar in relation to present and projected climatic conditions. It concludes that the current vulnerability of Hakha Township is high, and with the predicted changes in climate, decision-makers in Hakha Township will need to plan for increased flash floods and landslides, strong winds, increased temperature, and erratic rainfall with greater amounts of rain within a shorter monsoon season.

The purpose of this report is to help decision-makers in Hakha Township, in Chin State, and at the national level understand risks related to climate change for the period up to 2050, plan accordingly, and channel investments to build resilience for both the short and long term.

The recommendations proposed are (pp. 107-108):

  1. It is essential that the socio-economic resilience of Hakha’s rural and urban populations is enhanced.
  2. It is crucial that local capacities on disaster risk reduction are enhanced.
  3. Solutions for addressing climate change vulnerabilities of Hakha’s population must include strategies for addressing women’s needs and empowering them.
