Building Inclusive Urban Communities (BInUCom)
A project funded under EU Erasmus+ Program in the field of Capacity Building in Higher Education
Rapid urbanization is expected to lead to a housing shortage in Indian cities of about 30 million by 2022, which creates appalling conditions for urban poor. The government of India has addressed this problem by defining “Housing for All” by 2022 as its goal. This situation creates a huge demand for architects and urban planners, who can deal with the complex challenges of sustainable social housing and the development of inclusive urban communities.
To complement the vertical policy making in India with a horizontal exchange of good practices, the BInUCom project aims at fostering the collaboration between Indian HEIs in India.
