Evidence shows that Asian Mega-Deltas’ elevation is much lower than previously assumed.

Home to 400 million people, AMD is at risk from increased incidence and intensity of floods, sea level rise, salinisation of soil and freshwater, water shortage, severe cyclones and climate extremes. The direct and indirect effect of climate change in the region threatens food and nutrition security and can cause an annual loss of 6% of GDP in SEA.

The session, in which Gold Standard's Chief Technical Officer, Owen Hewlett will speak, aims to provide a space for multi-stakeholder discussion about the following topics:

  • Loss and damange
  • Sustainable Finance
  • Water and Land governance
