Webinar: Insights on urban design and built environment.
The outbreak of COVID-19 across the world and resultant lockdowns in several countries is unparalleled. It has cast its shadow across various economic activities with dislocation in global production, supply chains and trade. As business during COVID-19 looks like an unchartered territory, every stakeholder is grappling with the ever-developing response mechanism.
Infrastructure has always been the key growth driver for India, given its need, possible quantum & number of projects and the far-fetched impact it can create on all sectors quickly (both directly and indirectly). India is not only looking forward to getting back its shine in terms of GDP growth but also doing so rapidly with aggressive reforms in the key strategic sectors. This may prove to be a prologue of a massive opportunity that Infrastructure sector may witness in India.
Austrade in partnership with Vision360 Management Consulting India is organising a series of webinars on exploring opportunities in the Indian infrastructure sector amidst COVID-19 pandemic. The webinars will provide insights on impact of COVID-19 in Indian Infrastructure sector and how it can translate into possible business opportunities for Australian organisations.
The second session scheduled on 18th August 2020 will be a panel discussion on the urban design and built environment
Once the COVID-19 pandemic is under control, more holistic approaches are expected. Cross-disciplinary collaboration of public policies, urban planning and design using open public spaces, parks, urban forests and integrated blue and green infrastructure shall be needed as tools to make cities healthy. The discussion points shall be as follows:
Challenges in developing and managing sustainable infrastructure;
Policy instruments for sustainable built environment;
Current projects and collaborations.
