Muncipalika 2015: 13th International Conference on Sustainable Habitat and Smart Cities
Municipalika 2015, organised in partnership with Jaipur Nagar Nigam, will be held from 9 to 11 December 2015 in Jaipur, and will convene experts and practitioners in the areas of housing and urban infrastructure development to bring clarity and understanding to the recently launched urban and housing missions. The event will showcase the challenges and opportunities afforded by mega projects like 100 Smart Cities, AMRUT, Swachh Bharath Mission and Housing for All, while also focusing on the role of the private sector in realising these initiatives.
The event is support by the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing and Poverty Alleviation, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India; Urban Development and Housing and Department of Local Self Government, Government of Rajasthan; industry bodies, FICCI and NASSCOM; and non-profit agencies, World Resources Institute and UN Habitat, amongst others.
Building smart, safe, green, and healthy cities goes well beyond the urban and housing sectors. Realising this, the Government of Rajasthan has invited participation from allied departments like environment and forests, energy, public health engineering, tourism, transport, disaster management, science and technology, to showcase their activities and how they contribute in city infrastructure development and management.
