Livable Neighborhoods

A “livable neighborhood” is one that offers a healthy environment and provides for shared spaces that brings together people along with offering convenient access to core services.

More than a third of India’s population lives in cities, and within our lifetime this figure is likely to reach three-quarters. Urban interventions that focus at the city scale sometimes fail to identify local differences, needs and expectations. Focusing on neighborhoods becomes easier to collate relevant data and identify and co-create appropriate solutions suited to specific communities’ needs and aspirations.

Interventions in strategic neighborhoods is also likely to have city-scale implications — improving well-being, resilience, sustainability and economic prosperity that go beyond the neighborhood itself. For example, improving access to hubs of employment can change the labor market geography for the entire city.
