National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) in collaboration with Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) and support from the Department for International Development (DFID) of the UK Government is implementing the project "Building Accessible, Safe & inclusive Indian Cities (BASllC)” through a Technical Assistance Support Unit (TASU) established at NIUA. The principal goal of BASIIC is to build the capacities of Indian cities to be sensitive and responsive to the needs of the people with disabilities (PwDs). The project aims to homogenise the definitions and concepts associated with PwDs in India and to holistically build the capacity of practitioners to plan and implement with the tenets of universal access and inclusiveness. The project shall also actively work to gather the key stakeholders working on disabilities on a common platform and demonstrate innovative solutions – technologies, programs and service delivery models in the realm of universal access. The key objectives of the project are - 1. Consolidation of definitions, concepts, policies, provisions, and practice w.r.t. PwDs in India. 2. Mapping the major areas of opportunity in implementation of policies and provisions at city level and replicable solutions for making cities more accessible and inclusive for PwDs. 3. Develop a monitoring and evaluation framework for pilot cities to assess and improve their standards of universal access and inclusivity. The framework will be developed to be replicable for other Indian Cities to implement..
