Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA), organized a workshop on ‘Urban Engineering, Construction Automation and Sustainability’ to discuss the challenges Indian cities face in terms of disaster resilience, transportation, green cover, sustainability, construction, and design. Dozens of experts in urban engineering and infrastructure assembled at a workshop. Dr. Sreevalsa Kolathyar, Assistant Professor (SG), Department of Civil Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore Campus, said, "I would rate the disaster resilience of Indian cities as four out of ten. While India performs well in post-disaster management, we are strategically not as well prepared to face a disaster".
