United Nations South East Asia Youth Environment Network
Professor Jeff Obbard presented to the United Nations South East Asia Youth Environment Network on Climate Change, at the Singapore Sustainability Academy – as kindly hosted by Mr James Soh, Executive Director of the Singapore Youth Achievement Award Council.
In attendance were youth leaders from 10 ASEAN countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. South East Asia is predicted to be the first region globally to experience climate departure i.e. the time when the coolest year, going forward, is predicted to be warmer than the hottest year on record in the 1960-2005 baseline period. The city of Manokwari in Indonesia is predicted to be the first city to experience climate departure in 2020, with Singapore following in 2028. I covered the very latest data on atmospheric temperatures, the Earth’s energy balance, sea level rise, and ice-sheet dynamics. We rounded-up with a discussion on the regional response to climate change mitigation & adaptation, and the global transition to a low-carbon economy.
