Can India adapt to extreme heat?
Policy Post #109
Editor’s Note ✍️
This week, we bring you perspectives of farmers, students, business owners, factory workers and scientists on the lasting impact of rising temperatures on working conditions and productivity, in the face of climate change. You’ll also find an op-ed on how the Indian government has been hard-selling millets as nutri-cereals; however, its push is yet to gain widespread traction. Lastly, we bring you an exciting fellowship opportunity for early stage researchers to advance publishable writing on urbanisation in India. Keep scrolling!
With that, we bring to you: Policy Post #109!
