Building Accessible, Safe, & Inclusive Indian Cities (BASIIC) is an action research programme implemented by the National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India. It intends to bring in a paradigm shift in the urban planning and design process by incorporating the tenets of universal accessibility, safety, and inclusivity as the first principle across three levels of government and a wide range of relevant stakeholders. It is supported by the Department for International Development of the UK Government funding through an accountable grant to NIUA. The programme developed through the process of co-creation and multiple rounds of consultation with the key relevant stakeholders and beneficiary groups highlights the value of working with target beneficiaries - persons with disabilities, elderly, women & children (People) as change agents. The transformation in action is the identification of existing gaps in policies and guidelines (Policy) relevant to the above beneficiaries and demystification to a larger group of stakeholders. Outcomes envisaged include more accessible, safe, and inclusive placemaking (Place) for a better quality of life and liveable communities & neighbourhoods. This curation of accessible, safe and inclusive cities through People-Policy-Place (P3) in a collaborative manner with all the quadruple helix actors - government, civil society, academic & research, and industry/start-up on-board is a step towards sustainable development goals.
