India’s Urban Future: How can we make our cities more democratic, productive, and sustainable

ISPP is organizing the ISPP Policy Relay workshop on Urban Design & Policy Making. The workshop will focus on India’s Urban Future: How can we make our cities more democratic, productive, and sustainable. Our key speaker for this event is Dr. Shahana Chattaraj.

Topic of Discussion: Urban policy problems are complex and interconnected. They include jobs and industrialization; migration, infrastructure and housing; social policy and planning; land and urban development; climate change adaptation and mitigation. Urban policy works at the scale of cities, neighbourhoods and regions – it is an emerging and increasingly important policy arena that will play a central role in shaping India’s future. What sorts of governance institutions, policy approaches, skills and information do we need to make and implement effective urban policies for India?
