The IGCS Bulletin Vol. 5 (4) is published. The last month was turbulent. Demonetization (Nov 8th), Honorable Chief Minister Jayalalitha’s demise (Dec 5th), and cyclone Vardah (Dec 12th) are testing the resilience of people in India, Tamil Nadu and Chennai, the latter coping with all three events accumulated. Apart from this, this bulletin demonstrates that the IGCS is as vibrant as ever. We held several workshops, were present at the Cityscapes Conference in New Delhi and UN Habitat III Conference in Quito. An interesting feature is published by Dr. Christoph Woiwode on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience in the Chennai Metropolitan Region.
