12 Indian cities present the future of sustainable urban development

In 2018, The Government of India, AFD and the European Union launched the City Investments To Innovate, Integrate and Sustain (CITIIS) program, a challenge process that called on cities around India to submit their proposals of how they would become the country’s next smart cities.

The Agence Française de Développement (AFD) was a key partner in the programme. Selected cities in the CITIIS program would receive a grant of €100 million from AFD as well as €6 million of additional funding from the European Union to mobilise the expertise they required. The 12 winning projects are presented on the AFD website:
