Anoop Maurya

Abstract: A collection of apparently disconnected ideas about urban planning, transportation, health, housing, energy, economics, developments and social justice all comprise a single framework the eco-city. A survey of several paradigms or movements that have been floating around for last 20 or so years may help in understanding dimensions of eco-city concepts. In this study eco-city concept aims at developing a comprehensive environmental management strategy for the Kanpur city based on baseline information with regard to urban environment quality and services. This concept takes a closer look at the existing framework of the states policy on various components of environment; identify the processes and causes, which are leading to deterioration and decline of the environment in and around Kanpur. The report after detailing the threats to environment has made an attempt for future action plans aimed at ensuring compliance with the proposed city development plan. Selection of a suitable landfill site for Solid Waste Management (SWM) forms an important component of urban planning.
