Due to the Parliamentary election in mid-2014 followed by the Madhya Pradesh Civic and Panchayati Raj elections, the valedictory function of CIHfestival 2014 was rescheduled. Now it will be telescoped with CIHfestival 2016.
The theme of CIHfestival 14 was ‘landscape dynamics & biodiversity’. The objective behind this theme was to study the patterns and processes that connect plant, animal and microbial species with each other and with the soil, air and water. The theme also included techniques to promote the sustainability and ecological integrity of an ecosystem.
