Delhi heat wave action plan 2023

Delhi has introduced an all-encompassing heat action plan aimed at shielding vulnerable communities during peak summer heatwaves. Among the measures outlined are adjustments to school schedules, reduction of non-essential water usage, continuous power supply to healthcare facilities, and daily assessments of at-risk areas. The plan, developed by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority, also proposes a pilot project to coat rooftops with white paint in designated zones, aiding in temperature regulation indoors.
