Building Climate Resilience in Southeast Asian Secondary Cities

Article

Southeast Asia is urbanizing rapidly, with cities in the region growing five times faster than in other regions of the world.

These cities, however are often highly vulnerable to the risks posed by climate change, particularly floods, droughts, and sea-level rise, because of their geographical locations.
