About this Event

Urban Transitions: Preparing for the Next Decade

Around the world, cities are changing. We are witnessing advances in digital innovation, a shift towards a shared economy, and vast improvements in technology. At the same time, there are now more frequent instances of extreme weather. This has resulted in a greater urgency to move towards sustainable lifestyles and a paradigm shift in the way urban systems are planned and designed.

In India, too, major urban centres are experiencing a massive transition in the way people access and use transport, energy, housing, and public services. While this transition has its benefits, issues related to infrastructure, traffic congestion, air quality, and water and waste management need to be addressed. This has to happen alongside concerted efforts at enhancing capacity in order to adequately respond to natural disasters. In addition, challenges of safety, security, and equity, especially amongst vulnerable populations, need to be considered. 

At Connect Karo 2019, government officials, academicians, civil society actors, and businesses will come together to identify key levers that would accelerate infrastructure and service delivery in order enable sustainable and equitable urban transitions that would help India prepare for the next decade. The sessions would focus on mobility, safety, housing, innovation, and climate action.
