The Australia India Institute has examined key areas where Victorian expertise can contribute to operationalising liveability in India's rapidly expanding cities, capitalising on the Indian Government's ambitious development program for improving liveability.

It focuses on establishing partnerships between the national, state, and urban local governments to apply ‘smart’, or ICT enabled solutions, for driving economic growth, building infrastructure, delivering services, and enhancing the quality of life of residents.

The Victorian Government’s India Strategy outlines a committed engagement with India at both national and state levels for sharing knowledge and expanding collaborations in the urban liveability sector.
