Split City Mumbai: Time Scarcity, Space Scarcity
Mumbai is a city of vast divides. The quality of services such as water and electricity, sanitation, and garbage removal depends on where you live. With limited resources, planners must make hard decisions: should plots of land be allocated for housing or for open space? Which neighborhoods should new water pipelines reach? How many new flyovers should be built for car owners and what kinds of public transport projects should be recommended? In this panel discussion, join us as we attempt to define and acknowledge Mumbai’s conditions.
