Year 2020 which was a year to track the progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and gear up to make the next decade count has taken a big turn and the entire focus of the world shifted to a pandemic which demonstrated how we have been taking the nature for granted, testing its patience and perseverance and how powerful or impactful it is to make us realize that we are mere players in the hands of the nature.

The 12th GRIHA Summit scheduled as a Virtual Conference from December 15-16, 2020 has been themed around "Rejuvenating Resilient Habitats" and shall serve as a platform to deliberate on innovative technologies and solutions which shall help in creating robust mechanisms for developing sustainable and resilient solutions for the benefit of the entire community.
