“Integrated Approach to Slum Redevelopment”

About 60 per cent of Mumbai's population of 12 million are classified as urban poor and live in slums. A public-private partnership redevelopment model is being worked in Mumbai with mixed results. Redeveloping slums by giving them alternative accommodations in lieu of government incentives throws up some critical and sensitive issues of social, economic and cultural aspects of the slum dwellers. This presenter shares some of his deep insights on the humane and caring aspects of rehabilitating the dispossessed and offers integrated solutions that would benefit all the stakeholders in a win-win manner.

Abis Rizvi is the CEO of Rizvi’s Real Estate business and Vice President of the Rizvi Education Society. A management graduate, Abis Rizvi has also diversified the group into software and hospitality while managing the day-to-day affairs of the group with focus on growth and quality. He is currently busy mentoring and shaping up the team to manage projects worth 50 billion rupees, part of which are already on the drawing board.
