Southeast Asian countries are considered to be one of the world’s most vulnerable to climate change. The frequency of extreme weather events has increased in the past decade in the region.

Climate change has caused massive flooding, droughts, and landslides, which has negatively impacted the coconut plantation as it is susceptible to climatic variations.

Thus, fluctuations in coconut prices would impact the overall price of the end product, which is a major factor hampering the market growth
