National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) is presently collaborating with the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) for preparing the Master Plan of Delhi 2041 as an Enabling Strategic Plan. As an effort towards knowledge assimilation for this prestigious work, a two-day International Conference on “Re-inventing Delhi”, is being planned on February 19-20, 2019 at The Stein Auditorium, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. The Conference is designed to learn from best practices across the globe, and international experts, practitioners, city administrators and academicians have been invited to speak about the big ideas and strategies adopted by cities that are global economic centres and cultural hubs and at the same time foster practices of liveability and sustainability. The presentations and ensuing deliberations will focus on identifying transformative urban strategies that can potentially define the contours of Delhi’s future urban development strategy.
The Conference is structured along the following 5 themes:
Alpha City: Strategies for Urban Transformation
City on the Move: Accessible, Efficient and Sustainable Mobility
Resilient City: Natural Environment and Climate Change
Evolving City-I: Managing Urban Regeneration and Redevelopment
Evolving City-II: Role of Technology as an Enabler of Urban Transformation
The concept note, tentative agenda of the event and speakers’ profile is attached.
