Master Plan Delhi 2041: What is the Green-Blue Policy?


Team Udayavani, Sep 10, 2020, 11:23 AM IST

The Delhi 2041 Master Plan will have a “blue-green policy”. According to Indian Express, blue-green policy aims at bringing water management and green infrastructure together

As the existing Master Plan 2021 will be outdated next year, The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is holding public consultations for the preparation of the Master Plan for Delhi 2041.

It is a vision document for the city’s development over the next two decades.

‘Blue’ infrastructure refers to water bodies like rivers, canals, ponds, wetlands, floodplains, and water treatment facilities.‘Green’ infrastructure stands for trees, lawns, hedgerows, parks, fields, and forests.

The concept refers to urban planning where water bodies and land are interdependent, and grow with the help of each other. They will offer environmental and social benefits.

The promised steps are important because water management, reuse and recycling, sanitation, and good public hygiene have now become non-negotiable due to the climate change

However, according to the report of Indian Express, the biggest challenge here is the multiplicity of agencies. DDA wants to bring together different agencies like Delhi Jal Board, Flood and Irrigation Department, and municipal corporations as stakeholders in the project.
