Hot spots

Jakarta was named in a study as the “most vulnerable” to climate change in southeast Asia.

Metro Manila ranked 7th in the list of hot spots.

Southern Mindanao or the Davao Region was 103rd among 341 districts surveyed in 7 countries in the region.

The study was based on five climate related risks – tropical cyclones, floods, landslides, droughts and sea-level rise.

But this is not a reason to celebrate even if Davao ranked low among the hot spots.

We need to care for the environment and help fight climate change.
