In the past few decades, promising economic opportunities and living conditions has fueled migration of human population from rural areas to urban cities. As per the UN estimates, 70% of the world population will be dwelling in cities by 2050. This continuous ‘human’ influx in cities has had an unprecedented impact on the existing resources such as land, water, energy and overburdened ‘man-made’ infrastructures. Together with natural calamities such as floods and cyclones; unrestricted population explosion in urban set-up compromises the intricate balance of the ecosystem. There is an urgent need to develop harmonious solutions to tackle these global challenges of sustainable urbanization.
The above issues and more will be addressed in form of lectures or panel discussions and book reading under the umbrella of the German House for Research and Innovation (DWIH), New Delhi.
