The epicentres of this process are located in the Global South. Here, millions of people are projected to pour in to large andsmall cities. The migrants, often having suffered badly under failing conditionsin the hinterland will look towards the city to provide a livelihood. Also, cities will also experience demographic growth owing to reproduction of current city dwellers. Cities in the Global South are already reeling under severe stress and infrastructure is failing. One of the key ingredients which the burgeoning cities need to equip themselves with is appropriate transportation and infrastructure that enhances liveability and ensures equal access for all in the city of tomorrow.‘World-class City’ has become a cliché synonymous with metropolitan urban development.Smaller and medium cities too, not having a plan of their own, try to brainlessly embrace this. This approach often results in inappropriate, uneconomical andunsustainable transportation systems and infrastructure being built which further puts economic and environmental stress on the already degrading – both economically and environmentally – cities world over in general and cities in the Global South in particular. With this understanding, we aim to develop strategies at international, national, state and regional levels for ‘appropriate transportation andinfrastructure development’ for evolving sustainable humane habitats.Sub-themes:National, State, Regional and local Infrastructural Development Policies and PlansAppropriate Urban and Rural Infrastructural Development Strategies & ProgrammesAppropriate and Innovative Transportation and Infrastructural Design and ConstructionAppropriate Social, Cultural, Health-care, Educational and Recreational infrastructureAppropriate Transportation Evolving Sustainable Humane HabitatsInternational, National, State and Regional Infrastructural Development Policiesand PlansWe need to review the existing infrastructural development policies and plans atinternational, national, state and regional level to critically evaluate if theexisting infrastructure is adequate and if the plans for next two-three decadesare in place to meet the future demand for infrastructure in a rapidly developing world. We would like to discuss the change that is required in our policies a
nd programmes for appropriate transportation and infrastructure development to enable evolution of sustainable humane habitats.Urban and Rural Infrastructural Development: Strategies & ProgrammesWe are aware that world over architects, engineers, planners and policy makers have been experimenting along with the private, government and non-government organizations to plan, design and develop appropriate programmes for urban and rural infrastructure development. We would like to know about such experimental andsuccessful strategies and programmes of transportation and infrastructure renewal, up gradation and development from different countries and cities.Appropriate and Innovative Infrastructure Design and ConstructionAppropriate infrastructure designs and plans for power, transportation, communication, water supply, drainage, sewage collection, treatment and disposal, refusecollection, recycling and disposal systems. Infrastructure sector provides unique opportunities to architects, engineers and planners to design appropriate, affordable and sustainable infrastructure using innovative approaches.
