Writing (South-East Asian climate map reveals disaster hotspots) on SciDev.Net on March 10, 2009, Imelda V. Abano describes

"An attempt to map the potential effects of climate change across South-East Asia . . .

The map . . . considers the region's risk of exposure to climate hazards as well as its ability to adapt to such threats, . . .

The project, 'Climate Change Vulnerability Mapping for Southeast Asia', was carried out by the International Development Research Centre's Economy and Environment Program for South-East Asia (EEPSEA) as part of a larger-scale study."
