Urban management issues are critical to sustaining the economic and social vibrancy of our cities. Various non-government stakeholders of Bangalore – citizens, industry associations, NGOs, community organizations etc. have in their individual capacities tried addressing the issues.
But the complexity and enormity of the challenge requires a collective collaborative approach that makes the whole larger than the sum of its parts.
What is Bangalore City Connect Foundation?
It is an initiative that aims to bring various urban stakeholders outside government together on a single platform. This also helps government respond in a constructive, collaborative manner to the voices coming from outside government, and create value-added partnerships.
Bangalore City Connect Foundation is a registered non-profit trust. It was founded by Confederation of Indian Industry (Southern Region and Bangalore chapters) and Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy.
Beginning with Traffic and Transportation, BCCF aims to assist Governmental agencies by providing the required knowledge assistance and support for better planning and implementation of urban infrastructure in Bangalore.
Formal partnership with government (Bangalore Traffic & Transport Initiative):
BCCF and its value proposition have been recognized by the Government of Karnataka and a special initiative called BTTI (Bangalore Traffic & Transport Initiative) has been formally approved by a government order.
