Imagine Mumbai

In Search of New Ground

An imperative for India’s fast growing metropolises and cities, like Mumbai, is achieving an efficient balance of development and sustainability to meet the civic needs of the growing urban population. At the same time that large scale infrastructure projects are urgently required for mobility and connectivity, as well as expanding the city space, they also present alternate and significant challenges to the environment, as does increasing demand for essential resources and waste management. How can we provide future land capacity to meet all these needs, while ensuring holistic, forward-looking and sustainable approaches? What are some of the lessons India can draw from others, such as Singapore? National and international experts from urban policy and development will participate in an exchange of ideas and best practices on how to optimize use of the vital commodity of land, for Mumbai and the many other high growth cities across India.
