Sustainable Mountain Development

Traditionally, communities living in mountains have always had a symbiotic relationship with nature and natural resources that helped the eco-system survive unscathed over centuries. This relationship with nature was based on coexistence rather than competition. They have been the richest source of flora and fauna and many other precious resources and play a vital role in maintaining ecological balance. Mountains also serve as a source of income, food and subsistence for people. Due to increased human activities and climate change, mountains are being harmed and polluted. Gati aims to protect these mountains through strategic policy interventions.

Urban Governance

Today, with rising population and increased rural-urban migration, cities are becoming heavily stressed. Issues such as land, traffic, health, environment and waste need to be seen with a fresh perspective. Believing in the doctrine of an eco-friendly and sustainable approach, Gati aims at developing balanced and sustainable models of urban development which lay stress on resource reduction.
