Bangkok Assessment Report on Climate Change

Bangkok Assessment Report on Climate ChangeThis assessment demonstrates that the impacts of climate change are already being felt as residents of Bangkok experience higher temperatures. The average maximum temperatures observed in Bangkok have risen by 0.8°C, from 32.6°C in 1961 to 33.4°C in 2007.  The impacts of climate change on the city are likely to be quite severe, including major flooding due to Bangkok’s low elevation, increased land subsidence which is already occurring, problems of water supply provision and contamination, air pollution and oppressive heat with associated health consequences, increases in infectious diseases and decrease in biomass production.
