India’s Urbanisation Experiences


This joint publication from Global Policy and the Observer Research Foundation provides information on key urban challenges facing India, and directions the country could take to absorb and manage future growth. Five aspects responsible for achieving sustainable urbanisation are reviewed: Urban population trends, implementation of master plans, housing for the urban poor, solid waste management and the need for smart cities. The analysis is based on a review of secondary sources as well as the workshops cum discussions organised by the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) with the support of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) during 2013-14 in New Delhi. India’s leading scholars, practitioners and interest groups participated in the workshops and discussed ideas about how future urban policies and strategies should be shaped.
