Sustainable Urbanisation Planning Workshop

The 6th Sustainable Urbanisation Planning Workshop was organised on 6th June 2023 at New Delhi under India EU Urban Partnership (IEUP) support project in coordination with Indian Institute of Public Administration.



The workshop went through setting the context of Delhi from a metropolitan region planning perspective and traversing through experience and learnings from past similar workshops and finally a panel discussion was held to address a few pertinent questions from the audience.


The discussions encompassed the need for sustainable urban planning through a plethora of interventions like making cities self-reliant through competition, use of green construction materials, rejuvenating urban waterbodies, developing satellite towns as a part of the conurbation, building regional transport infrastructure through RRTS, and overall incentivisation to private sector as vital elements of metropolitan planning. Metropolitan Planning Organisations of Mumbai, Chennai and Indore (where such workshops were held under IEUP support project in the last one year) participated and shared their learnings and key action plans undertaken.



The event was attended by more than 60 participants from EU delegation, School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, officials from Government of NCT of Delhi, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), Municipal Corporation of Delhi, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd, FICCI, Delhi Jal Board (DJB), Housing & Urban Development Department, GIZ India, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), Chennai Unified Metropolitan Transport Authority (CUMTA), Indore Development Authority (IDA) etc.


Overall, the event was a great success with the objective of a forward-looking approach to ensure a smart and sustainable growth of the city.
