    • Increase the amenity value of cities by developing greenery and well maintained open spaces (e.g. parks)
    • Reduce pollution by switching to public transport or constructing facilities for non-motorized transport (e.g. walking and cycling).

    All these outcomes are valued by citizens, particularly women, and indicators and standards have been prescribed by the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) in the form of Service Level Benchmarks (SLBs).

    Thrust Areas

    • Water supply

    • Storm water drains to reduce flooding
