India is in the midst of a ‘smart cities’ revolution. The ‘Smart Cities Mission’, a government-backed programme of urban renewal, is intended to make the country’s cities more liveable and sustainable. But how can this be achieved when the cities are facing a series of complex and interconnected challenges such as, explosive population growth, inadequate infrastructure, persistent poverty and climate change?
