U of T students tackle climate change in Southeast Asia
“Cities are both the cause of and the solution to environmental change,” says Nathan Stewart, a University of Toronto urban planning graduate student. Since April, he has been conducting research in Thailand on the effects of climate change on the population of a city called Khon Kaen, located in one of the poorest regions of the country.

Mukati was observing the urban development of the country, taking note of the barriers getting in the way of healthy growth.
