I am very pleased to announce the launch of ‘URBAN 2020: Shelf of Projects’ scheme. The scheme, led by the Kerala Sustainable Urban Development Project (KSUDP) will enable Urban Local Bodies to accelerate infrastructure provision and financing. The best available expertise in the country will be made available for project development including preparation of good quality Detailed Project Reports covering key sectors in urban development. We will facilitate access to infrastructure finance under various schemes and programmes following the preparation of DPRs. It is my conviction that the scheme has much potential to transform the urban infrastructure landscape and I would like to encourage all Urban Local Bodies to effectively utilize it to improve infrastructure, services and the overall quality of urban life in Kerala.
