Abstract

By 2036, a much warmer environment has engulfed Asia, bringing major headaches for governments and community leaders. Despite scientists warning of the impending climate change 20 years ago, there had been only a slow awakening to the magnitude and scale of change about to hit both coastal and inland communities.


As predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2014, more extreme weather, flooding, subsidence, storms, drought, fire, dust and sand storms affected have communities throughout Asia, leading to mass migration, social unrest and increased poverty. No nation or community escaped the impact of climate change, which unfairly hit the poor, who are often located on “marginal” lands and coastal areas.
