Identified investment needed for climate-proof transport infrastructure in Thailand
Since Thailand is located in the tropical climate zone, the country is vulnerable to natural disasters including floods, storms, and drought. Climate change exacerbates natural hazards, particularly heavy rainfalls, and flash floods. While transportation has a great potential in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the sector is also prone to climate change impacts.
According to the assessment of Investment and Financial Flows (I&FF), Thailand needs 13-14 billion THB to make the transport infrastructure more resilient against climate change.
This assessment in Thailand is one of the activities under the NDC Support Project: Delivering Sustainability through Climate Finance Actions in Thailand.
