A disturbing phenomenon observed in most developing countries of the world is the failure of city governments in meeting the basic needs of the urban population. It is a well known fact that inadequate levels of infrastructure and services adversely affect the quality of urban life as well as the economic productivity, and affect the process of sustainable development.
Taking note of the implications arising from low levels of urban infrastructure development in Indian Cities, the Observer Research Foundation (ORF), New Delhi in collaboration with the Rosa-Luxemburg Stiftung (RLS), Germany is organizing a Seminar on ‘Water for Indian Cities’.
Date: 6th April, 2010 (Tuesday)
