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?
This webinar on Wednesday 8 February 2017, at 13:30 IST seeks to answer the following question:
How can India ensure that its cities are not just smart, but are also resilient?
Hosted by the Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN), the webinar will focus on TARU’s soon to be published, second volume of its Road to Resilience Handbook – a practical guide for resilience planning and implementation at the city level.
