Challenges of urban resilience in India

Source(s):  All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI) issue no. 128, March 2015:

This issue explains the challenges of urban resilience in India. As repeated disasters have struck India's urban centres, new risks and vulnerabilities have emerged. Weak institutional frameworks and gross social inequalities make the urban centres of the country particularly susceptible to the adverse impacts of disasters. Climate change has added another level of complexity to the mire of existing vulnerabilities. In this context, this issue tries to explore underlying facts, observable trends and the projected impacts of these urban risks and their implications on urban resilience in India.

This issue's contents includes: (i) What is missing in India's urban resilience?; (ii) Risk on the structural margins; (iii) Chennai and its urban environmental risks; (iv) Urban risks and vulnerabilities in India; (v) Urban resilience in Uttar Pradesh; (vi) Lima to Delhi: what can be learned on urban resilience?; and (vii) Sericulture – a potential but vulnerable source of livelihood in flood-prone Dhemaji Assam.
