The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organising a three-day orientation programme, ’Urban Transportation Reforms for Liveable Cities,’ in New Delhi from June 25 – 27, 2014 for government officials from different cities of India. The objective of this forum is to promote good regulatory practices in air quality and mobility management.
