Evaluation of existing slum dwellings in urban settings to meet the UN SDG goals
Keywords:Sustainable development, Slum redevelopment, UN SDG, Climate responsive, Urbanization
Over the past two decades, urban environmental quality has declined, and slums are seen as the primary concern. Despite numerous slum upgrading strategies to address urban poverty in developing countries, the issue is only projected to get worse. The lack of sustainable slum redevelopment guidelines in India is a policy gap that needs to be addressed. To make sure that the upcoming LIG housing stocks are sustainable, a logical design and planning approach is required to address climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals. This paper focuses on the study and analysis of existing slum dwellings and their living conditions, and from the observations of the study, it aims to propose recommendations for creating sustainable and sensitive redevelopment. As part of a new approach for slum upgrading projects to meet SDG objectives, it will also investigate the criteria required to construct climate-responsive urban dwellings that are closer to Net-Zero Buildings.
