Title: Life in Jacobabad, one of the Hottest Places on Earth: A Story of Forced Migration

Karachi, Pakistan • Climate Change

, a city located in the Sindh province of Pakistan, has been named as one of the hottest places on Earth by the World Meteorological Organization, with temperatures soaring up to 52 degrees Celsius (126 Fahrenheit) during the summer months. The extreme heat has forced almost 50 percent of the total Read morepopulation to temporarily migrate to other cities in search of relief from the scorching weather. Mostly locals start migrating to other cities in the start of May, but this year, Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) warned of above normal temperatures and chances of heatwave episodes that too will start from the month of March. So instead of migrating to other cities in May, they are planning to abandon the city by the start of April.

This news story will explore the daily lives of the people in Jacobabad and the challenges they face due to the unbearable heat. It will also shed light on the reasons behind the mass exodus of the population during the summer months and the impact it has on the local economy.

Despite the intense heat, Jacobabad is facing an acute shortage of drinking water, forcing locals to purchase drinking water at a significant portion of their daily income. Moreover, there are prolonged power shutdowns, which have led some residents to install solar panels to run fans. However, due to the increasing dollar rates in Pakistan's economic crisis, the price of solar panels has skyrocketed, making it unaffordable for many. In rural areas, people use charpoys (traditional woven beds) on the pavement between the two-lane roads to catch the gusty wind from passing vehicles. Unfortunately, this has led to accidents, and people's lives are at risk. However, locals have come up with a unique invention: donkey-driven fans.

In Jacobabad city, one can feel how hot the city is, and the shops are everywhere, selling cold juices and ice cream. The main market is covered to provide a comfortable shopping experience for visitors.

In 2010, Jacobabad was one of the worst-hit districts during the floods, and the houses destroyed by the floods are still being reconstructed. For house construction, there are several brick kilns, and the workers are forced to work for low wages during the scorching heat. The same applies to hundreds of workers at the rice mills, as Jacobabad is considered one of the rice-growing districts in Pakistan's southern Sindh province.

The story will feature interviews with residents of Jacobabad, who will share their personal experiences of living in such extreme weather conditions and the struggles they face while trying to cope with the heat. It will also include perspectives from local authorities and experts on the impact of climate change on the region and the steps being taken to address the issue.

The news story will aim to raise awareness of the challenges faced by people living in regions affected by extreme weather conditions and highlight the urgent need for action to address climate change and its impacts.
