Vulnerability of Climate Change and Hardcore Poverty in Malaysia

R.A. Begum, C. Siwar, R.D.Z.R.Z. Abidin and Joy Jacqueline Pereira

Abstract:
Malaysia is also experiencing adverse effects of climate change that lead to impacts on water resources, food supply, coastal zone, public health, human settlement and others and necessitate national and international responses to face climate change. The economic resilience of nations to weather the climate change effects differ between countries. To further compound this, within a particular country there are different levels of vulnerability resilience reflecting differences in location, socio-economic circumstances and level of preparedness. As resources are limited, particularly in developing countries, there is a need to prioritise which vulnerable groups should receive the assistance to increase their level of preparedness. This study briefly highlights an overview of GHG emissions and incidence of poverty and hardcore poverty in Malaysia. The study also identifies the risk and vulnerable factors and demonstrate the possible vulnerable states based on present and future climate projection undertaken by National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) and hardcore poverty in Malaysia.
