Urban Farming in Navi Mumbai Eco-City
Eco–city broadly means a human settlement modelled on the self–sustaining structure and functioning of natural ecosystems. It is developed on the lines of integrated urban planning and management programmes addressing social and ecological health of the city. Navi Mumbai, a planned twin city of Mumbai, is ready to take up another stride towards sustainability through a joint venture of TERI and NMMC (Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation) under the project “ECO–CITY”. Cutting across three major sectors- residential, industrial, and government, the Eco-city project shall be accomplished in two phases in the span of three years.
