‘We have to improve our resistance to climate change’ Climate vulnerability and resilience in Indonesia.
During an interview after his lecture, Dr. Sugardiman shared his views regarding climate vulnerability and resilience in the context of a developing country: “In Indonesia, the most vulnerable sectors to climate change are the food and health sectors. Massive disruptions in these two important areas will threaten national security. Therefore, it is extremely important to improve our resilience to climate change.
