The characteristics of many rural and urban settlements in India are changing, and hence, the concerned government institutions must respond in the light of these changes. The adoption of a regional approach to planning by many governments in the world has helped in reducing spatial inequalities in social, economic and physical development. India, too, began its journey, and positive outcomes were derived in the early phases. However, the practice become unpopular over time. ORF and GIZ are jointly organising a national Conference on “Regional Planning in India" to build greater knowledge on the quality of regional plans, land use planning and management, the experience of recent initiatives, and the barriers in their effective implementation.
The timing of this event is from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm
