“Comparative Study on Climate Change in Thailand, Vietnam” is the latest article by U.S. Army Maj. Afua Boahema-Lee, published in Liaison, a journal of civil-military disaster management and humanitarian relief collaborations.
Boahema-Lee presents a comprehensive, comparative study on climate change’s impact in the Indo-Pacific region, exploring significant security challenges particularly in Thailand and Vietnam. It investigates various climate change-induced phenomena, including floods, droughts and rising sea levels, and their negative economic and health consequences.
Thailand and Vietnam have implemented policies and strategies to combat these challenges, engaging stakeholders such as nongovernmental organizations and the military. The article underscores the need for joint efforts between Thailand, Vietnam and the U.S. to effectively tackle climate change. The proposed collaboration aims to promote renewable energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve water management and boost agricultural resilience.
