The occurrence of climate change in Southeast Asia, one of the world’s fastest-growing regions that have been stimulated by the heavy exploitation of natural resources, deforestation, forest burning and encroachment resulting in the increase and aggravation of problems in Climate Change threats.
Thailand and nearby countries are now facing extreme and unusual weather conditions. The change in weather patterns has become an immediate crisis, creating a larger impact on livelihoods, reduction of food security, agricultural productivity and health risks.
Average temperatures in Southeast Asia have risen every decade since 1960, becoming the worlds most affected region by climate change in the past 20 years, according to the Global Climate Risk Index-Germanwatch.
