Abstract

According to UN estimates, by 2050, about 70% of the world's population will live in cities, making cities the primary source of more than 80% of all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with transportation accounting for 25% of these emissions, the built environment for 32%, and municipal solid waste for 5%. These factors lead to climate change and environmental degradation further adding pressure on city infrastructure such as urban water supply, sewage, solid waste management, and urban heat island effects, among others. This paper presents an overview of Critical Aspects of Sustainable Cities and Government Initiatives for Sustainable Development in India.
