Investigating Infrastructure: Ecology, Sustainability and Society
India is building a future based on Infrastructure. A ‘wave’ of projects and investments are redefining India in myriad ways. Recognizably, these are pivotal to its growth story, foundational for rapid and inclusive development as well as achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Mega projects dot the country in between various stages of visioning and implementation and crucial to all these are infrastructure investments that are being sought.
Furthermore, regional politics and the ‘China factor’ heightens infrastructure related anxieties for India, as the ‘New Silk Road Economic Belt’ programme ties up with both allies and adversaries in India’s neighborhood, triggering security, connectivity and trade concerns.
Against this backdrop the Heinrich Boell Stiftung Regional Office New Delhi, had initiated a web dossier in 2018 which presents various perspectives on India’s infrastructure development.
In this webinar, three authors will present by their contributions, bringing together different approaches and perspectives to infrastructure development in India. Through this webinar we are also announcing and pre-launching the printed publication of the dossier to be released on March 2022.
