The Municipal Corporation is now preparing the city’s next development plan, scheduled to run from 2014–2034. Some suggest, for plans to become even more effective, planning could be coordinated collectively. For instance, a more grassroots approach could be taken—one that allows residents to make suggestions about developments for their neighborhoods. Join this panel discussion to consider the citizen’s role in government development and how we can explore participatory planning in Mumbai.
