Mysore Urban Infrastructure

The city's urban infrastructure pertaining to water; sanitation; solid waste management; public transport; roads and basic services for the urban poor (BSUP) is expected to improve dramatically under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM).

Plenary 1: Integrated Infrastructure Policies (household/ individual)
Plenary 2: Integrated Infrastructure Policies (Macro Economy)
The plenary, composed of academics, finance and infrastructure professionals, and representatives of key urban constituencies will focus on ways in which political, bureaucratic, and market underpinnings for better integrating infrastructure, housing, and land decisions could emerge. The panels will explore the prospects for integration from two perspectives: that of the household/individual and that of the macro-­-economy.

Deep Dive 1: Land Acquisition: Regulation and Practice
This workshop will look at the law, key issues and challenges, the political economy and practices around land acquisition, relief and resettlement, especially in the context of the new Bill(s) on land acquisition, relief and rehabilitation.

Deep Dive 2: Infrastructure and Spatial Prioritization
This workshop will examine the current systems In place for spatial integration of infrastructure development, focusing in particular on identifying ways in which planning could be improved through politically and technically feasible changes in urban management. It will explore some of the institutional, political, cultural incentives underlying the current fragmentation of responsibility, and examine some of the potential technology, political, and economic drivers for change.

Deep Dive 3: Infrastructure & Sustainability
Land is one of the key natural and the most contested resources in urban areas, but it often involves far more than simply the observable territory; land is an important part of the urban ecological fabric – as a “green lung”, a wetland, a habitat. The workshop will examine various issues of environmental sustainability with regard to land, land use and land cover, paying particular attention to the causes and consequences of land use changes and evidence of the impacts of this process

Deep Dive 4: Low Income Housing: re-examining Upgradation
This workshop will critically examine the assumptions and diverse frames behind “low income housing” – from definitional debates on conceptions, measure and entitlement paradigms to contemporary efforts including public, market-based and policy programs seeking to fill the growing housing shortfalls in Indian cities. The panel will look particularly at the Rajiv Awaas Yojana as a strong contemporary housing response by the State, asking what it would take for the RAY to be a successful intervention that integrates housing with other aspects of economic and social infrastructure to create liveable, dynamic, and inclusive cities.

Mysore Conference
Date: 17 -20 November, 2011
Venue: Infosys Training Centre, Mysore, Karnataka, India
The Mysore conference is designed to bring together state and local policy makers, policy implementers, academics, students, civil society, and industry stakeholders to identify challenges and chart strategies for India’s urban development. The conference explicitly seeks to engage urban residents and practitioners in the discussion in order to develop a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the current context and priorities moving forward. The themes for the Mysore conference mirror those of the New Haven conference, with the addition of Urban Economy and Urban Social Services. Collaboration with Context Anchors, organizations with deep expertise in their respective urban fields, ensures the requisite depth of analysis in each thematic area. The Mysore conference also includes an event designed for student networking and showcasing of student proposals for urban India, while the Delhi event will offer opportunities for some of the studentsto share their work with an audience of national policymakers.
