Heat waves, drought, rising waters: extreme climatic events are becoming more frequent and will multiply in the coming years. Since June 2022, The world devotes a series of investigations and reports to the subject of adaptation to climate change (which you can find here).
This podcast episode looks back on the major issues we are facing: what should France do to organize itself in the face of the impacts of climate change? Should we start by recruiting firefighters or buying air conditioners? How can we make our cities liveable despite heat waves? How to plan this major and certain transformation?
