Jan Beermann addresses power learn gaps in city weather governance and North-South cooperation. He compares the shape, tactics and results of 4 neighborhood weather security tasks carried out as a part of German-Indian city cooperation and explores the stipulations linked to the good fortune and/or failure in those tasks. The learn concludes that North-South urban partnerships fight to completely appreciate their capability to foster international weather defense efforts, in particular when it comes to post-project sustainability, multi-level governance coordination, and mutuality. at the foundation of those findings, functional coverage tips on how you can maximise the results and develop the scope of city weather cooperation are provided.
