Great Cities of India: A Dialogues Seminar

December 3, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Between 2000 and 2014, India added nearly 127 million new residents to its towns and cities, and over the next 15 years its urban population is projected to grow by a further 177 million. As such, India faces numerous challenges as a result of these massive levels of urbanization. Meenu Tewari will investigate this rapid process of transformation and will use great cities such as Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, and Kolkata as her case studies.  Russ Smith will highlight Jaipur and New Delhi as his case studies as he introduces us to the recently announced Smart Cities Mission and its attempt to improve daily life in India’s cities.
