  • The COVID19 experience has shown us that effective
    leadership, empowered local governments and a participatory
    multi-stakeholder approach can play a key role in managing
    crises and strengthening the resilience of our communities.
    This Framework will pave the way for unlocking this potential
    to catalyze and amplify India’s climate response that is driven
    and led by Cities.

    Hardeep Singh Puri
    Hon’ble Minister of State (Independent Charge),
    Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs
  • I strongly believe this assessment will play a significant role in
    incentivizing a holistic and climate responsive urban
    development approach in India. It will help scale up the
    ongoing initiatives and nudge cities towards undertaking
    transformative climate actions.

    Durga Shanker Mishra
    Secretary, Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs
  • Cities of today need to constantly evolve and be resilient
    and responsive to disruptions –technological, environmental
    and socio-cultural - to be able to thrive economically and
    provide quality living to its residents. The Assessment
    Framework is an effort in this direction. I congratulate all
    cities for the successful completion of this extremely
    important initiative.

    Kunal Kumar
    Joint Secretary & Mission Director (SCM),
    Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs
  • Initiating and sustaining cohesive climate action in
    urban India requires intensive capacity building of cities,
    availability of urban and climate data for informed
    decision-making, robust research and innovation, knowledge
    sharing and partnerships to leverage the available skills and
    resources towards meeting these goals. The assessment
    will help cities strengthen themselves on these fronts to
    be able to prepare for and have the ability to thrive
    despite a changing climate.
