Introduction

In March 2013, Atkins, supported by the Development Planning Unit of University College London and the Indian Institute of Human Settlements, were commissioned by the Climate Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) to undertake action planning with the city authorities of Bangalore and Madurai focussed on developing future proofed urban strategies in the cities. 

The key objective of the project is to help both cities to develop an Action Plan which charts a clear way forward, via the development of policies and other interventions, to help them respond to climate hazards and promote a transition to a low carbon economy while reducing poverty and catalysing economic development. A special emphasis is placed on supporting and enhancing locally owned policy processes.
