■  The GDRC Urban Governance programme underwent a major revamp, with GDRC now focussing on the sub-themes of smart cities, 15-minute cities, Liveability and urban rewilding, and e-governance. We hope to complete the revamp within the next few months.
@gdrcdotorg - 15 July 2023

■  Waste management continues to be an increasignly complex challenge at the local level that has huge implications on global enviromental problems. A GDRC publication from 2015 emtitled, "An Urban Waste Management Continuum: From Disposal to Minimization" was expanded and updated in March this year.
@gdrcdotorg - 20 March 2023

■  We spend more than 80 percent of our time indoors - whether living or working. With energy costs of buildings dominated by air conditioning, fans and other mechanical systems that cool buildings, renewed interest is being paid to the concept of "passive" cooling, especially traditional/vernacular ideas that suit the unique conditions in the tropics. GDRC presents Environmentally Sensitive Buildings in the Tropics: Design Ideas for Passive Cooling in the Urban Environmentl Management pages.
