From melting glaciers and cloudburst in Himachal, to cyclones that hit both the western and eastern coast of India. From rising temperature and heatwaves across North India, to landslides in Maharashtra and flooding in the coastal Goa. From sinking Sundarbans, to submerging Mumbai. From new disease outbreaks in the north, to water crisis in Chennai. Nature is unleashing its fury across India, threatening our future and pushing the human population to its very edge.
The Quint will be reporting from the frontlines of a planet in crisis, bringing you stories of devastation, but also stories of hope, of sustainable solutions and innovation.
Join Dia Mirza, actor/activist and United Nations Environment Programme goodwill ambassador, as she partners with The Quint to bring you the most important stories of our lives on Living with Climate Change.
Surviving Sunderbans: The Tale of Climate Refugees
Our first documentary took you to Sunderbans, to report from the heart of climate change in action. You can watch and read about how communities are living as their houses submerge around them right here:
Mumbai: Rising Waters, Sinking City
Our next documentary shifted focus on Mumbai, India's financial capital, that may soon flood if serious steps are not taken to curb rising waters. While our documentary focused on the Mumbai Climate Action Plan, it also showed how rampant development has brought the megapolis to the edge of disaster. Our storytellers where those on the forefront, the Koli fishermen, and also those living in the high rises, that face the risk of water logging and flooding. You can watch the documentary here:
Climate Change and the Great Mountain Farm Loss
Our next documentary that releases in September, takes you to Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, the two mountain states that remind us of the pristine beautiful mountains, scenic valleys, and lush orchards.
But what lurks behind these picturesque places? How has snowfall, rainfall, hailstorm, and temperature patterns changed over time and how has that impacted their fields and their lives and hence, our lives.
Research says horticulture and agriculture production in certain parts of Himachal Pradesh has shown a declining trend of 40-50% due to warming climate. They are a microcosm of the havoc climate change will be wreaking on all of us, even those living in metro cities and urban areas.
The Quint will travel to these two mountain states to meet the farmers, the orchard owners, the villagers to bring you their stories as they live with climate consequences.
We are telling these stories through those who are most impacted, the people living with everyday consequences of climate change. Support The Quint so we can bring you more stories that matter.
