Abstract

Coastal ecosystems are particularly vulnerable to climate change as the rise in sea level will lead to damage of infrastructure, degradations of agricultural areas, contamination of surface and groundwater and loss of biodiversity; which covers a wide range of negative impacts to various socio-economic sectors. Preliminary findings indicate that Kuala Selangor, which hosts several groundwater aquifers and serves as a significant “rice bowl” for the nation is susceptible to groundwater salinization and other impacts of sea level rise. A comprehensive assessment is required to evaluate the potential impacts of sea level rise in the area so that appropriate adaptation measures can be identified and implemented to ensure sustainable socio-economic development.
