The climate crisis will affect the whole country, but according to a new forecast study, Terengganu will be in trouble in the next couple of decades.
First, the state is expected to experience severe drought between 2025 to 2030 due to El Nino, then followed by frequent flooding between 2030 to 2035.
The new forecast study was jointly conducted by the Malaysian Administrative Modernization and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU) together with the National Water Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM).
The results were produced via ‘big data’, which can predict climate change patterns up to 100 years from now.
The forecast is based on the report made by the Intergovernmental Climate Change Panel (IPCC) and is a warning call for the Ministry of Environment and Water to help the country prepare for the inevitable.
It’s Getting Worse
This is usually because of the migrating monsoon, which gives Malaysia its “two seasons”.
If you’re thinking that things never used to be this bad in previous decades, that’s because you’re right.
Unfortunately for us all, the climate crisis is here and ready to wreak havoc, so the only thing left for us to do is prepare for it.
