    • The Greening of Cities attains importance in the context of rapid urban expansion which is taking place in India in general and all over the world in particular making it imperative for all policy makers to focus on growth of cities in sustainable manner. The megatrends of urbanization, climate change, globalization and demographic change will shape the future of cities.

     

    • Ms. Deepa Dasmunsi, Minister of State for Urban Development Government of India during her address as Guest of Honor highlighted the current pace of Urbanization in the country and said private sectors need to come together and institutionalize the framework to work collaboratively to ensure inclusive urbanization and added that the  urban sector will play a critical role in the structural transformation of Indian economy and in sustaining high rates of economic growth. She mentioned that  urban development is a State subject as different states have their own policies, hence we need to focus on reforming governance and entrust more responsibilities to the local bodies build more local expertise to improve service delivery.

     

    • Mr. M Maheedhar Reddy Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development, Government of Andhra Pradesh, in his inaugural address, threw light upon key initiatives undertaken by Government of Andhra Pradesh and said the percentage of urban population to total population in Andhra Pradesh reached 33.49% in 2011 as compared to 27.3% in 2001. There are many initiatives like Preparation of City Sanitation Plans, Service Level Benchmarking of Urban Services, Jawarharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission, Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority Master Plan, Integrated Township Policy and Hyderabad Metro Rail Project etc taken up by Govt of AP which will make the city more resource efficient and environment friendly.

     

    • Mr. Arun Maira, Member, Planning Commission, Government of India, in his keynote address talking about various dimensions to Architectural Governance as a solution to the challenges towards building greener cities and said “Solutions developed locally are more contextual and more appropriate to pursue sustainable development in respective cities. We need to build lateral networks to learn from each other and improve capability and reform the role of the center and instead enable local bodies to manage produce better results. If we were to build urban transport system, learning and implementation has to be simultaneous so that we don’t wait for years together to learn capacity building.”

     

    • Mr. H.E. Joao Cravinho, Ambassador - Delegation of the EU to India shared his perspective on global approach towards sustainable urbanization and said, “Local concerns and Global concerns are two faces of the same coin which needs to be combated. Cities being places of connection which function as centre of services, constantly under the pressure of economic growth should be equipped to provide healthy mobility of people and business. This gathering today opens doors and paves way to enhance cooperation and knowledge sharing and create fruitful partnership between Europe and Hyderabad to make cities more capable and resourceful.”
