The report demonstrates the important role the private sector plays in building resilience and adaptive capacity in the face of a range of climate-related shocks and where opportunities exist for further action. We focus on Thailand, which suffered severe flooding in 2011 and faces a range of risks from climate change. Although climate change affects business and communities all over the world, the specific mandate of this report is to examine climate risks and strategies for resilience in Thailand exclusively. To highlight the different approaches business can take to resilience-building, we also provide four examples of how organizations are tackling this issue and present opportunities for future action by the business community. These examples are set in the Thai context, but they include elements that can be applied by companies working in other countries facing similar challenges.
