The island of Borneo is projected to be severely affected by climate change through increased risk of floods and forest fires, human health impacts, changes in agricultural yields and damages to infrastructure. Sea level rise is projected to cause widespread damage to population centers.

This report indicates that if the island of Borneo continues at its current rate of natural capital loss through deforestation, it will be severely affected by climate change through the increased risk of floods and forest fires, human health impacts, changes in agricultural yields and damages to infrastructure.

With two degrees of warming, Borneo’s rich biodiversity in marine, reptile and amphibian species will be severely affected, and potentially devastated by any warming beyond this level by 2050.
