Our project proposal leverages Kochi’s natural assets, monsoon culture, and social capital to put forward an integrated development vision that seeks to make the city more resilient, vibrant, and inclusive.
We have created a comprehensive toolkit of strategies: ADAPT, CONNECT, EMPOWER, which are scalable, multisectoral in approach and can be customised to meet local needs. ADAPT catalogs Nature Based Solutions (NBS) strategies that leverage the landscape to re-establish the linkages between urban greenery, monsoons, water bodies and the aquifer. CONNECT describes a redesign of the public realm and mobility systems to improve access to transit, lively places, and safe spaces. EMPOWER outlines how citizens can participate in the improvement of their neighbourhoods and build inclusive communities by facilitating the formation of social networks.
