Child Friendly Neighbourhood Design Guidelines

Our Indian studio has developed a comprehensive package of urban design measures for neighbourhoods in Indian cities that support the health and wellbeing of children aged 0-5. This study forms a part of the Indian Smart Cities Mission for the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, and is funded by a Dutch Foundation. As a part of this study, Manisha Bhartia, urbanism studio leader and Radhika Mathur, senior urban designer co-led a consultation workshop with Bernard van Leer Foundation and the National Institute of Urban Affairs on 7th January in Mumbai. The workshop brought together public officials from four major cities in India, along with their technical partners and other foundations working on improving the welfare of infants, toddlers and their caregivers in urban India. There was overwhelming support for the package and a route map was developed to incorporate these urban measures within city policies and funding plans.
