The world is changing.
People are moving into cities, living more and using more clean energy, and the environmental and health impacts of these changes are being felt all over the world.
But while the impact of climate change is undeniable, its impacts on industrial and agricultural services have not yet been fully understood.
In this special programme, we ask a number of experts, both in industry and academia, to examine the industry and services they see as most vulnerable to climate change, from water-intensive industries to water treatment facilities.
The programme, The Climate Factory, is produced by Al Jazeera and Al Jazeera International.
The interviewees are: Alireza Mirza, chief executive of the International Water Management Association (IWMIA), a UN-organised body of experts and experts in water and water resources; Dr Anand Bhargava, the president of the Centre for Water Resources Policy at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in New Delhi; Dr Rajendra Rangarajan, the director general of the World Bank; Dr S. Sudhir Sharma, a senior researcher at the Water Resource Research Institute (WRRI) at the University of Queensland; Dr Richard A.
