Impact of Sea Level Rise Due to Climate Change: Case Study of Klang and Kuala Langat Districts

M. F. Mohamad, M. R. Abd Hamid, N. A. Awang, A. Mohd Shah, and A. F. Hamzah
Abstract—Global climate change is predicted to cause an increase in sea level rise and the frequency and size of storms and storm surge. This will contribute further to the shoreline erosion; flood damage, inundation of land, saltwater intrusion into the freshwater lens aquifer, among others. The completion of sea level rise study in Malaysia by National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) and Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE), several subsequent studies were proposed. One of the subsequent studies is a study on the sea level rise impact to the planning and development of the national coastal zones specifically at Klang and Kuala Langat districts. Concurrently, a study on the National Physical Plan – Coastal Zone (NPP-CZ) was prepared by the Federal Department of Town and Country Planning Malaysia. The national level study has set clear principles and strategies on coastal spatial planning and developments along the national coastline (Peninsular Malaysia).

Index Terms—Sea level rise, climate change.
