    UNDERstanding Indian Urban Governance REFORM: A comparative analysis of the Smart City Mission reforms and their impact on sustainable urban mobility

Latest news

About the project

Under Reform is a two-year project looking at transport reform in India. It aims to develop cutting edge insights into how reforming transport governance works, and how best to generate more sustainable transport systems in Indian cities. In 2015 the Indian national government launched the Smart Cities Mission, aiming to reform transport governance more effectively than had been managed at individual city level. The project research will analyse previous and planned reforms in four of India’s designated smart cities, considering their impact on the prosperity and quality of life of citizens. The aim is to move beyond simply identifying problems, rather developing an understanding of how to overcome them.
