Training Programme on Preparing Urban River Management Plan

Description :

Managing urban rivers in a holistic manner is a relatively new and evolving field in India. Until now, the emphasis has solely been on controlling pollution. While this is undoubtedly important, there are several other environmental, economic and social aspects that need to be considered as well. To address this gap, in November 2020, the National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) and the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) developed a unique framework for managing urban river stretches called the Urban River Management Plan (URMP) framework. It is expected that a number of cities will adopt this framework to prepare their city-specific URMPs in the next few years. This training program is to build the capacities of interested stakeholders in the knowledge and application of this framework.
