Episode 1: Chennai, the Climate Change Hotspot, is Running Out of Drinking Water | The Quint



For the past seven years, Chennai has been plagued by floods, droughts, and other extreme climate events. The city is a great case study of what can go wrong when industrialisation goes unchecked, causing the encroachment of flood plains and waterways to satisfy the demand for new homes, factories, and offices. Can Chennai be saved, or is it all doom and gloom? We are trying to get some answers in this two-part documentary series – ‘Flooded but Parched in Chennai’.
