We keep saying:
India Story, Climate Grammar.
By which we mean:
  • India is a young country with huge aspirations
  • Much of India remains to be imagined, let alone built
  • All of that future will have to be made real in the era of climate change
  • However, the story will always be about the needs and aspirations of Indians.
We may never mention the word climate change when we talk about nutrition, but we will have to make sure that the changing rainfall patterns and heat waves due to climate change are factored into our imagination of a food secure India. That’s what we call climate centric design, where we embed climate change into all the systems that we want to create in the future: education systems, transportation systems, health systems and so on.

You want to reduce the carbon footprint of your food? Focus on what you eat, not whether your food is local - Our World in Data
