Centre launches Climate Smart Cities Assessment Framework along with ‘Streets for People Challenge'

@HardeepSPuri
Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri today launched the Climate Smart Cities Assessment Framework, CSCAF 2.0, along with the ‘Streets for People Challenge’ in a virtual event. The objective of CSCAF is to provide a clear roadmap for cities towards combating Climate Change while planning and implementing their actions, including investments. CSCAF initiative intends to inculcate a climate-sensitive approach to urban planning and development in India.

The Streets for People Challenge is the response to the need for making the cities more walkable and pedestrian friendly. The Challenge builds on the advisory issued by the Ministry for the holistic planning for pedestrian-friendly market spaces, earlier this year. The Challenge will support cities across the country to develop a unified vision of streets for people in consultation with stakeholders and citizens.

Secretary Housing and Urban Affairs Durga Shanker Mishra, senior officials of Ministries of Housing and Urban Affairs and Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Principal Secretaries Urban Development of States and UTs, State Mission Directors of Smart Cities Mission, Municipal Commissioners and CEOs of Smart Cities, representatives of partner agencies and other key stakeholders attended the virtual event.
