Climate change threatens species-rich habitats in protected lands in Vietnam. Temperature increases, variations in precipitation, and sea level rise will impact this small but diverse region in a number of ways.
These impacts, which will manifest in Vietnam’s mangrove and inland forests, will have knock-on effects on species endemic species and migratory bird species that frequent the region at different times of the year.
ICEM produced this report on how climate change will affect biodiversity in its many protected areas. The report appeared as a chapter in Daniel Lunney and Pat Hutchings’ book Wildlife and Climate Change: towards robust conservation strategies for Australian fauna
