In 2007 The National Environment Agency (NEA) over two phases conducted the 1st National Climate Change Study.
Phase 1 showed climate change would lead to the rise of sea level by 0.65m, while a 4.20C rise in temperatures by 2100
Phase 2 on the other hand studied the level of impact on public health, urban temperature profile, energy consumption of buildings and biodiversity.
