“Planned urban development will be a vehicle for India’s transformation” —Prasanna Mohanty

India’s urban population, estimated at 410 million in 2014, is projected to reach 814 million by 2050.

The country will have three times as much population in cities and towns in the next 75 years.
It is not cakewalk to lead a city or nation into reduced poverty and accelerated growth. It requires years of planning, merit and tools to be able to bring home progress.

Let us take the example of Smart Cities Mission launched by the Government of India with the objective to promote sustainable and inclusive urban development. This mission targets the improvement of civic services through “smart” solutions. Effective planning and management of urban land and transport are critical for this mission.

In the light of this urgent need for reformation and planning of cities for a better tomorrow, Professor Mohanty “calls for incorporating the economic approach to cities into urban planning. This approach advocates a people-centered, rather than place-centric design of the city.”
—Excerpt taken from Planning and Economics of Cities

Drawing from theory as well as practice, Planning and Economics of Cities is an exemplar resource that adds value to our understanding of urban planning as well as development strategies.

Mohanty posits a solution that the nation awaits.
