About the book

‘Climate change will soon define how we work and live in India. Mridula Ramesh’s pragmatic ideas of pushing individual initiative and climate-resilient start-ups to solve this problem offer an original roadmap to policymakers as well as the people of India for years to come.’ – Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Commerce & Industry and Civil Aviation of India

‘We are indebted to Mridula Ramesh for preparing this very useful book and I commend its widespread use for developing a practical action plan.’ – M.S. Swaminathan, Father of India’s Green Revolution, Recipient of the Padma Vibhushan by the Government of India

‘[This book] is filled with practical solutions honed by experience and will be a go-to-guide for combating climate change for many years to come. Read the book to see what you can do to combat climate change!’ – Dr Rajendra Singh, the ‘Water Man of India’

The Climate Solution explores India's challenges in dealing with climate change and highlights the importance of practical local adaptation to climate change.’ – Dr J. Srinivasan, Distinguished Scientist, IISc

‘Written in an engaging, conversational style, The Climate Solution makes easy reading of a complex topic.’ – R. Ramaraj, Senior Advisor, Elevar Equity

From fatal heatwaves and cruel droughts to devastating floods and fast-depleting water tables, climate change is the greatest disruptor of our time – and it can no longer be ignored.

For most of us the odds seem overwhelming and solutions seem out of reach. Yet, in this forcefully argued book, climate change practitioner, teacher and investor Mridula Ramesh emphasizes that while the situation is grim, it is not without hope.

Drawing on her extensive practical and investing experience, she explores myriad facets of this raging issue: why women are peculiarly affected by a warming climate; how climate change poses a security threat to the Indian state; why just focussing on green sources of power is an incomplete solution for India; how managing waste can create hundreds of thousands of urban jobs and how households can cope in a ‘Day Zero’ water situation.

In doing so, she shows how climate warriors, from the cotton fields of Punjab and thriving eco start-ups in Bengaluru, to a forest guardian in Assam and the johads of Rajasthan, have employed ingenuity and initiative to adapt to the changing conditions – and sometimes reverse their shattering effects.

Timely, urgent and thought-provoking, this book is an urgent call to action – and an essential manifesto for every Indian citizen to follow.
