Keywords:Urbanization, Sustainable cities and communities, Economic development
Urbanization is not just about an unnatural increase in population, it reflects the deeper social transformation such as restructuring economies, new politics, different livelihoods, and developing infrastructure by considering people who migrate. On one side, Nations across the world are struggling to tackle climate change. On the other side, developing nations like India, with a huge population, result in over-exploitation of resources, thus evolving the uncontrollable change to the climate. The purpose of this paper is to provide a broad analysis of current urbanization trends in India in relation to macroeconomic developments (throughout the National five years plans i.e., from the 1st five-year plan to 12th five-year plan) to place India in the global context and speculate about the country’s future direction through the lens of Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. This paper critically focuses on the core parameters & the existing scenario of SDG 11 in the country. In addition to this, this paper points out the issues (Governance and constraints to SDG 11) pertaining to urban growth in India.
