    Cities are rapidly urbanizing and this in turn aggravates the global challenges like climate changes, extreme weather events, and poverty. As compared to 2018, when 55% of the world’s population lived in urban areas, it is estimated that by 2050, this number will rise to 68%. Urbanization could add another 2.5 billion people to urban areas, with close to 90% of the increase taking place in Asia and Africa (United Nations, 2018). India alone is projected to add 416 million urban dwellers to its population. In 2016, the New Urban Agenda (NUA) was adopted by the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III), emphasizing the importance of the concept of inclusivity in designing and managing our cities. It also promulgated the concept of Right to the City (R2C) for developing a revised planning framework to fulfill the international objectives and targets under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) (United Nations Habitat III, 2016a).
