WRI India Ross Center presents Unlock Bengaluru, a dialogue on sustainable development in the city. We will share learnings from our engagement in Bengaluru and other cities across the country and seek feedback on ideas to address equity, avoid unsustainable lock-ins and initiate transformative change. This event will take place on 8 July 2017 at Vivanta by Taj (MG Road).
The Hub is a free-access online capacity building portal meant to facilitate knowledge sharing, peer learning and collaboration in the field of sustainable urban transport and urban development in India. It is not only the absence of credible ground-level data, guidance documents for planning and design, knowledge of best practices and toolkits customized to local realities of our cities, that is an issue, but merely the lack of access to this information and these resources.
The Hub extensively bridges this gap to focus exclusively on research and learning filtered out as a part of WRI India’s work and engagement with cities, thus enabling effective utilization of data resources to improve the quality of life in cities. Access publications, research papers, data sets, videos, training material, toolkits and other ready-to-use resources developed by WRI India through its research work with different cities here: http://wricitieshub.org
