A recent report funded by Canadian and Swedish aid agencies has tried to map Southeast Asia’s vulnerability to climate change. Alas, it is not good news for central Jakarta, which is rated as the most vulnerable area out of 530 considered. The Philippines (yes, the whole country, including its 7107 islands) is also rated as highly vulnerable.
