Even a casual visitor can see that Mumbai’s public utilities are overstretched. This event, which will include a panel discussion and interactive session, will consider how private entities and public organizations can work together to solve problems and deliver services in order for Mumbai to become more comfortable and sustainable. As a backdrop, we will analyze a pilot project for water privatization in K East ward, as well as the lessons learned from electricity privatization in Mumbai.
