METROPOLIS : a network of knowledge exchange at the global level to facilitate actions to the local level

Metropolis, since its inception in 1984, has always focused its efforts on cities all around the globe. With its network of knowledge, partnerships and promotions, cities have been able to benefit and capitalise from this.

In India, population in Urban cities has been increasing over the decades. According to United Nations, over six billion inhabitants would live in urban areas by the year 2050. One of the biggest challenges with the unparalleled urban growth would be managing of the growth, population and balancing social equity in the cities. This would require city leaders and stakeholders to adopt “inclusive, innovative and integrated solutions”.

With this event, Metropolis plans to bring to Indian cities sustainable urban development and focus on social Inclusion, governance, partnerships and challenges of cities from developing regions. The sub themes for the event are :

  • Urban Equity – (must focus on) Urban Poor and Social Inclusion
  • Governance – (is about) Citizen Participation and Engagements
  • Urban Financing – (must redefine through) Local Finance
  • Urban India – (the largest) Democracy at Work
