Bridging the gap between Policy and Practice

Established in 1976, National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) was tasked to bridge the gap between research and practice on issues related to urbanization, and suggest ways and mechanisms addressing urban challenges in the country. For more than 40 years now, NIUA has been the vanguard for contributing to, and at times, building the urban narrative for a fast-evolving Urban India. The institution has been actively bringing forth key areas of concern to build the discourse at various urban scales.
