Welcome on board, we are excited to work closely with you over the next few months on issues of Climate Change in your cities to generate stories and research work which can draw attention and influence policy.
QoC-CANSA had an overwhelming response to the Fellowship call with many excellent proposals from all the four countries in South Asia, making it challenging for our esteemed jury, comprising environmentalists and media persons, to arrive at the most fabulous and fitting four. We decided to expand the canvas to select six Fellows instead of four as mentioned in the call.

Thank you to all those who responded to the call. We hope to be able to work with many of you in different ways in the future.

The breadth and depth of ideas in the large volume of applications we received over the last six weeks convince us that there is thought and commitment on issues of Climate Change and cities – from flooding and heat waves to changes in sea levels, urban inequality, and amenities such as housing and health – from young and experienced people in ecology, media and academia.

On behalf of QoC and CANSA, we extend our warmest congratulations to the Fellows once again.

Best wishes,

Smruti Koppikar                          Sanjay Vashist
