It gives us great pleasure in bringing out the first IGCS Bulletin in 2015! Read about IGCS´s numerous activites in 2014, pilot projects, project works and impressions of German Master Students researching at IIT Madras.
An interesting feature by Dr. G. Hoermann (Kiel University) and Dr. Franziska Steinbruch (IGCS Professor at IITM) on the topic “Towards Integrated Water Management of Pallikaranai Wetland in Chennai City, India” is presented, showing a kind of archetypical case of landuse conflicts related to rapid urban growth.
If you wish to receive the Bulletin on a regular basis, please contact portius(at)igcs-chennai.org. Your suggestions and feedback are most welcome.
