In a recent study by IIT Delhi, it was found that India has a whopping 45 million daily walkers, outnumbering those who use transportation. However, it's concerning to see that our cities are shrinking spaces for pedestrians. Potholes, broken footpaths, and areas taken over by shops and parked two-wheelers all make safe walking a challenge. How can Indian cities become more walkable? It's high time for a strategic overhaul in urban planning, with a laser focus on prioritising pedestrians, restoring footpaths, and crafting secure environments for the millions of pedestrians. Manisha Natarajan speaks with Mr Anupam Yog - Managing Partner at XDG Labs Pvt Ltd, Ms Anumita Roychowdhury - Executive Director at the Centre for Science and Environment, and Mr Vivek Pai - Director at Sustainancy Consultants Pvt Ltd.
