How to reduce impact of heatwave in your city

Some tips to reduce impact of heatwave in cities
With the climate changing, cities that are hot will get hotter and it is time to make our cities cooler
The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) says that one solution to make cities cooler is to grow more trees
Between 11 am and 4 pm the temperature in concrete areas and those with trees are 42 and 37 degree Celsius. That’s a difference of 5 degree Celsius
Trees should be grown as they reduce heat by cooling the buildings naturally, the NDMA also said
Maintaining the temperature of the Air Conditioner at 24 degree Celsius or higher is good for the environment
It would be a good idea to use energy efficient appliances, clean fuel and alternative energy sources would keep your city cooler
Using public transport, car pooling, reducing waste and re-cycling will help in reducing pollution and subsequent heat in your city
