CIDCO@Smart – Volume 1 issue 2

In July 2015, the CIDCO Smart City Lab published its second quarterly newsletter detailing the team’s activities between April 2015 and June 2015. The newsletter titled ‘CIDCO@Smart’ gives an insight into the work done by the smart cities unit in the areas of Research, Capacity Building, Innovation and Project support for CIDCO.

The second edition of the newsletter showcases an excerpt of the impact assessment study for increase of FSI in the gaothan areas of Navi Mumbai that was jointly done with RICS School of Built Environment, the latest progress of the National Smart City Mission with with Smart City Team’s role in conducting Citizen Engagement exercises both for the Ministry of Urban Development and the Pune Municipal Corporation.

In this newsletter, we have also captured smart policies and technologies in the form of case studies and policy briefs. These cover Electric Vehicles, Open Data and ‘Smart Trees’. It is hoped that featuring these ideas can instigate dialogues and potentially implementation in Indian cities especially Navi Mumbai.
