Governance experts, agencies, success stories
As a community-based initiative for responsive governance, Gurugram Action Plan aims to also extend support for all such projects in the country. The Rurban Initiatives project reflects our vision to become the hub of an ecosystem for citizen-driven projects to create sustainable habitats by collaborating with civic agencies. We expect that such groups will use this platform to share best practices and practical suggestions based on in-depth experience. The Gurugram Action Plan’s campaign posters, survey-based studies, and other content can be used for reference or as templates for projects in other cities in the areas of waste management, infrastructure, education, health and safety.
