This project is aimed at assessing contribution of climate change to the summer heat wave over East Asia. East Asia experienced a record-breaking heatwave in summer South Korea had its hottest summer nights and second hottest summer days since with summer mean daily minimum temperatures 2.

It is characterized by large-scale sea surface temperature SST anomalies over the central to eastern Pacific, associated with changes of thermal condition in the upper ocean and convective anomalies in the atmosphere. ENSO is well-recognized as resulting from ocean—atmosphere interactions over the tropical Pacific, and theories have been proposed to explain its formation and development. For example, Jin ab proposed a recharge oscillator framework, which highlights the importance of changes of upper-ocean heat content in the phase transition of ENSO.
However, above normal rainfall is likely over some northern parts of the region, eastern coastal areas of India, Sri Lanka, southern parts of Myanmar, and most parts of the Andaman Nicobar Islands. Below-normal rainfall is likely over some areas of southern Pakistan, some areas along the west coast of India, northern parts of central India and some areas of northeastern part of the region. The remaining areas are likely to experience normal rainfall. SASCOF issued its consensus outlook based on an expert assessment of the prevailing global climate conditions and forecasts from different climate models from around the world.

East Asia needs to shift toward a model of economic growth focused on low carbon emissions and more efficient use of resources. The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has passed parts per million ppm in Over the last 20 years, energy-related emissions of greenhouse gases have tracked or exceeded the A2 high emissions scenario of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCCand this pattern seems likely to continue for a decade or more.
South East Asian countries can ensure continued economic growth and prosperity, keep pace with the related growth in energy demand, and meet their Nationally Determined Contributions NDCs toward the Paris Agreement. The fall in the cost of renewable energy, the untapped renewable energy potential in South East Asia, and the lessons learned from increasing renewable energy penetration globally presents an opportunity for South East Asian countries to accelerate the energy transition and meet their Paris commitments. Public private partnerships can help speed progress, and our foundation is glad to play a role.
Scientific assessment indicates that the coastlines of Southeast Asia are highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Climate change challenge is real and urgent in Southeast Asia. This paper presents a desktop review of the state of climate change research and policy in Southeast Asia. It identifies important challenges, knowledge gaps as well as promising practices, with specific focus on urban planning interventions that will be relevant for future urban policy and research priorities in Southeast Asian cities.
Globally, Southeast Asia is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change. In just the past few months alone, the region has already experienced a typhoon in the Philippines, two tsunamis in Indonesia, and a tropical storm in Thailand. In the face of the complex challenges that climate change poses to the region, journalists are in a unique position to inform the future of the region.
Southeast Asia is a tropical sub-regions of Asia covering an area of approximately 1. It comprises of countries and territories that are located south of Korea, Japan, and China, north of Australia, to the east of India, and to the west of Papua New Guinea. It is the only region of the continent of Asia that is located both in the Southern Hemisphere and partly within the Northern Hemisphere. The region is comprised of islands and the mainland and includes eleven countries.
