About

Challenges in urban planning and management have evolved considerably over time. Ineffectiveness in integrating sustainable and efficient planning principles with traditional schools of thought while considering the dynamics of human settlement has often plagued our city life. With smart city initiatives, the impact of ICT could be a phenomenon. This course would encompass the holistic development of urban planning initiatives globally and nationally with a focus on micro-to-macro level analyses.

Several state-of-the-art concepts and their implementation strategies in different facets of the urban planning field would be discussed with respect to the current socio-economic challenges of the city. While the cities also connoted as ‘urban systems grow or shrink based on their economic attractiveness, the course would discuss the policies and practices that emerged as best practices across the globe.

The second part of the course would encompass hands-on exposure to the GIS environment to deal with location-allocation models to have better service delivery with respect to the catchment. The course would encompass several multi-sectoral examples to elucidate the concepts of efficient and seamless planning.
