I have submitted the synopsis of my dissertation, “Adapting Urban Neighbourhoods for Climate Change” to Mumbai University. I’ll be handing in the entire book by April. Then, it’s a matter of waiting until they assemble a jury.
Meanwhile, in the coming weeks and months, I intend to post some of my findings on this site. I have already put a few up on Twitter, but there are many others as well.
It has been a very long time since I last wrote here, so this post is just to say that I’m still around and, while I’m currently focused on completing my research dissertation, I will get back to blogging in a little while. Wishing you all a very happy 2019.
I’ve railed against the unnecessary use of concrete for years but I was not aware that it is such a huge contributor to Carbon Dioxide emissions – 10% of the worldwide total according to some estimates.
Here’s an interesting article because it gives a few alternatives to the use of concrete – most of them are not available here but, nonetheless, the article is worth reading.
