Urbanisation

Cities are centres of diversity, culture, growth and prosperity. Urbanisation encompasses development in terms of economics and infrastructure. The urbanisation team at ICRIER brings together a multidisciplinary group with experienced researchers from a diverse range of fields including urban planning, architecture, economics, geography and public policy. This interdisciplinary approach brings together discussions that invoke critical thought and discussions that dwell on different paradigms of the urban realm. Our approach and study is based on empirical analysis of qualitative and/ or quantitative data with a target to build a profound knowledge platform on urban policy and practice in India. At ICRIER, we seek thought provoking research on matters challenging the growth and welfare of our cities. Our projects are funded by the Ministry of Urban Development, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Finance Commission of India, National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and other Government and private agencies.
