We believe our cities and city-regions require not just better planning, but also better implementation, and enforcement. Our view is that the starting point for sustainable improvement, is revising archaic legacy statutes and processes, and developing robust policies that respond to contemporary demands and aspirations, respecting federal structures and democratic principles.
The Foundation has undertaken a number of policy reform initiatives in partnership with all three levels of government – union, state, and municipal. Our selection of the policy work we engage in is based upon its impact on spatial planning and development, and design issues. These include clarity on property rights, heritage protection, new guidelines for spatial planning, revision of procurement processes for urban roads, etc.View Portfolio
