Event Details

New smart cities and industrial clusters are being developed in special industrial corridors. The 5 Industrial Corridors project is creating the much-needed industrial infrastructure required for investments in India. The project also aims to develop new greenfield manufacturing cities, logistics hubs and residential townships along these corridors. India’s smart cities will incorporate the philosophies of sustainability, connectivity and development. Each manufacturing city will provide excellent infrastructure, convenient public transport, dynamic power management and an efficient water and waste management system. The Indian government’s new and innovative Smart Cities Mission is targeted at driving economic growth and improving the population’s quality of life by enabling local development and harnessing sustainable technology. 98 cities across India have been selected for the first phase of the project. It is crucial that we find sustainable transport solutions for people and goods while also acknowledging the importance of mobility for environmentally friendly growth and development. India now has the opportunity to learn from Western failures and successes. For instance India’s challenges in waste management present the opportunity to begin producing either biogas or fuel for incineration plants. The country must make the most of its challenges and opportunities in order to leverage global experience for the goal of sustainable mobility.
