Urbanization is soaring with over 70% of the population expected to reside in cities by 2050. By UN estimates, India’s urban residents will account for 52.8% of the population, in contrast with 34% today. This growth comes with massive challenges including opportunity barriers, space, technology, infrastructure, safety, and preservation of the environment and natural resources.
In assessing cities in line with the SDGs, an internal assessment pinpoints strengths and areas for improvement. This in turn acts as a referral point for future upgrades.
The evaluation will include a smart city assessment on SDG parameters and SDG advisory, as well as an SDG based sustainability framework with customized Key Performance Indicators and a combination of international and local best practices.
