IIHS, in collaboration with the Climate Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), UK, and Atkins is conducting a study involving a situational analysis of urban water and sanitation in Bangalore.

Introduction

The Rockefeller Foundation – IIHS Urban India Policy Support Partnership (2012-14) situates India’s urban transformation in the context of current governance, economic, socio-political, ecological and cultural trajectories. This is an attempt at engaging with policy concerns that span the growth-equity-resilience-transformative development spectrum, especially when viewed against the landscape of the Global South.

The IIHS has been in the process of researching and producing a set of working policy papers, teaching-learning material and digital interviews, that are directed towards addressing questions around India’s urbanisation challenges. These are targetted at national, state and city policymakers, learners, researchers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, as well as civil society leaders in India.

The Urban Policy Dialogues comprise a series of events under the Urban India Policy 1 Support Partnership, the first of which shall cover the following themes:

  • India’s Urban Futures
  • Urban Economy
  • Urban Poverty
  • Urban Housing
  • Urban Water Supply and Sanitation
  • Urban Transportation

The dialogues shall review the draft outputs, mainly working papers, and enrich these with the deep experience and insight that participants bring with them.
