Residents of one ward in Gorakhpur, UP, did a few things to reduce their vulnerability against climate change, which is causing crises in many areas.

There is nothing special about Mahewa. It is a small ward in the town of Gorakhpur, far enough on the outskirts of the city, and it hasn't seem to have made up its mind on whether it is a city or a village. Part of it is in the form of 'bungalow colonies', part in the form of small farms. Small share-autos service the area. It has a couple of schools, a few roads and practically no other infrastructure. Most distressing is the lack of adequate storm water drains and solid waste management.
