As India prepares to celebrate its 75th year of independence, Hon’ble CM Arvind Kejriwal has unveiled a bold vision for Delhi by 2047. In its budget for 2021-22, the Delhi Government has committed to building a Delhi by 2047 that is:
1. Equitable with per capita income of Delhi being equal to Singapore and every person, rich or poor, having a high standard of living.
2. Modern with world-class infrastructure and public services. Delhi shall bid for hosting the 2048 Olympic games.
3. Sustainable in providing clean air and water to all its residents and resilient in fighting disasters. Delhi will have transitioned 100% to electric vehicles.
Achieving this vision is not possible by any single stakeholder and requires deep, sustained collaboration between the government, private sector and civil society. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has further shown the true potential of multi-stakeholder collaborations and how the biggest of challenges can be addressed if all stakeholders of the city come together.
Delhi@2047, hosted by the Dialogue and Development Commission (DDC), is a platform for fostering partnerships with the private sector/CSR initiatives and philanthropic organizations to achieve the vision for Delhi by 2047.
OBJECTIVES OF DELHI@2047
