The HCM City Department of Natural Resources and Environment reported that under impacts from climate change, the weather in HCM City will become complicated.

The districts of Binh Chanh, Can Gio and Cu Chi will suffer the most from the impacts.

Due to climate change, the city’s temperature will increase by 0.5 degree Celsius while the rainfall will increase by 0.6mm a year, making flooding more serious in the city.
