How do you pick a home that's safe from the unpredictable effects of climate change? Can scientists tell us what climate impacts each neighbourhood in an Indian city will see?
In this episode, experts take us through what it would take to make hyper-local climate forecasts for city neighbourhoods, so you can choose a climate safe location to live in. We also see what we already know about future impacts and what we can do in the absence of forecast data. This is Part-1 of a Three-Part Climate mini-series.
