Cafe Griensteidl, Karl Kraus Saal Wien
The Club of Vienna is pleased to announce a public lecture on "Impacts of Climate Change in Thailand". As many countries in the world Thailand recognized the significance of global warming and climate change and therefore ratified several international documents on climate change. A major event of climate change that Thailand has been facing almost every year is flooding, which has long been seen as the most damaging and costly natural hazard in many countries. Due to global climate change and rapid urbanization in the floodplains, the frequency of devastating floods tends to be higher and the loss of human lives and property show no sign of decreasing.
