Introduction:

As part of a process for developing a set of Comparative City Indicators for the three targets for SDG 11, an exercise was conducted comparing six cities – namely Bangalore, Durban, Istanbul, New York, Rio de Janeiro and Accra. This input on Bangalore assesses the past patterns of development in the city of Bangalore, based on which potential pathways are projected for the business as usual versus a sustainable development perspective.
