A Network for City-Systems Reforms Launched.
The Network, a pioneering initiative anchored by Janaagraha, is envisaged as a collaborative network of civil society organisations working towards driving systemic reforms in urban governance. Dehradun-based Gati Foundation became the first member of the network in September.
A one-day conclave on 'Urban Transformation: Reviving the City of Dehradun' was also organised in December where a report on ASICS evaluation of Dehradun was released by the Uttarakhand Minister of Urban Development (UD), Mayor of Dehradun and Additional Secretary of UD Department. Two panel discussions were conducted on citizen participation and financial sustainability of Dehradun Municipal Corporation and saw active participation by the bureaucrats, elected representatives, academicians, civil society organisations and city leaders.
