According to McKinsey, Southeast Asia faces more severe climate change impacts than the rest of the world· In a report, McKinsey Global Institute said climate change is a serious challenge for Southeast Asia as it seeks economic expansion and continues to serve as an important engine of world economic growth. The new outbreak “highlights the importance of risk and resilience to life and livelihoods, and it is important that the role of climate should not be ignored as the world focuses on economic recovery,” Jonathan wortzer, President of the McKinsey Global Institute, who led the study, said in a statement. “Asia faces climate risks, which have the potential to have serious socio-economic impacts, so it is important to play a front-line role in addressing these challenges,” said wortzer < / P > < p > in addition to the impact on Southeast Asia, the study also outlines the potential impact of extreme weather on countries such as Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. The study calls these regions “Asian frontier regions.”. “We estimate that by 2050, 500 million to 700 million people in the Asian frontier may live in areas with a 20% chance of experiencing a fatal heat wave each year,” the report said < p > < p > the rise of sea level aggravates the flood disaster in coastal areas, which is a serious risk all over the world. The report estimates that it may face trillions of dollars in losses due to asset damage in the future. Floods not only destroy infrastructure, but sometimes pollute drinking water. < / P > < p > according to the report, Asia’s gross domestic product (GDP) could suffer between $2.8 trillion and $4.7 trillion a year by 2050, due to the decrease in effective outdoor working hours due to higher temperatures and humidity. The McKinsey report says Asian countries with low per capita GDP are at the greatest risk and the poor will be most affected. This is because they are more vulnerable to extreme weather than the rich, they rely more on outdoor work and natural capital, and there may be less economic means to adapt to this change. McKinsey also highlighted some of the climate risks that Southeast Asian countries may face. It referred to “emerging Asian countries” in its report, including Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. < / P > < p > countries in the region will experience increased temperatures and humidity. By 2050, these countries are likely to face an average annual GDP loss of between 8% and 13% due to higher temperatures and humidity. < p > < p > Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, often suffers from floods. By 2050, the infrastructure losses caused by floods may be as high as US $500 million to US $1 billion, and the associated losses will be between us $1.5 billion and US $8.5 billion.
