Planning Framework for Low Emission Zone (LEZ) in Core areas of Indian Cities


The objective of the study is to formulate a framework for planning and designing a Low Emission Zone for core city areas in the developing countries context by taking the case of Ahmedabad city in India. Based on the literature review of international and national cases, key intervention measures for introducing low emission zones will be identified.

Further, the enabling mechanisms along with the process of rolling out such measures and their impacts would also be assessed. Along with this, an understanding of the Indian planning and policy regime would help outlining a broad framework for planning of LEZs. The key monitoring indicators used for the evaluation of the LEZs will also be outlined.
