India Country Synthesis Report
Lessons from research in India, with implications for global policy and practice.
With the right development approaches, Indian cities can become hubs that relieve poverty and drive regional growth. PEAK Urban investigates the proactive policies and interventions that can produce efficient, productive, inclusive and sustainable urban futures.
One of four regional reports, this paper presents key findings from PEAK research based in India, as a focal country for regional urban development. Centred on Bengaluru and Delhi, the research covers five broad categories – economic transitions; services and infrastructure; governance, urban data sources and social protection. It offers insights to help government and non-state actors at city, national and international levels address some of the most pressing developmental challenges in the urban global South, and shape stable, equitable cities that deliver decent lives for all residents.
