S2E9 How to climate-proof your home [Part-2 of climate mini-series]


In this episode, we’re taking on a future you may not be able to choose and move to a climate safe location. Maybe it’s a job you can’t leave, or you can’t afford to move, or there aren’t many climate safe locations to pick from. How can you then keep your home, your neighbourhood safe from climate impacts?

This is Part-2 of a 3-Part Climate mini-series. In this, experts take us through how an Indian city is learning to deal with climate extremes and poor city planning; and how current and future homes and neighbourhoods can be reimagined for future climate.

Imagined Tomorrow is a science podcast that explores Indian futures.
