India Urban Space Foundation is a partner program of Janaagraha. It makes urban and spatial planning central to the transformation of Urban India, leading economic, political and social change through it.
IUSP’s flagship programs are:
INSPIRE – Integrated Spatial Planning Including a Regional Emphasis – is a project under IUSF that is developing national level spatial planning guidelines for urban areas. These can be used by state governments for preparing, implementing and enforcing master plans in urban areas. The project will provide policy guidelines to implement plans from paper to the ground and integrate development plans with spatial planning. INSPIRE advocates to make Master Plans the key tool for planning Indian cities with a larger regional perspective.
CHALLENGE: The absence of secure land titles in India is one of the biggest gaps impacting planned and equitable growth of our cities and towns.
Project PLATINUM – Partnership for Land Title Implementation in Urban Management – is a project hosted by IUSF which is preparing national level guidelines for implementing a guaranteed land title system in India.
