- The Cuttack Ring Road Resettlement
The Cuttack Ring Road resettlement project consists of 14 slums and 1500 households. Today, the settlements are situated in water logged areas or between the Ring Road and the river and are therefore flooded every monsoon. During 2011 ASF Sweden participated in the work of a community-driven relocation process. The work included an inventory, analysis, plan components and a proposal for the relocation site. These were jointly carried out by Mahila Milan, UDRC, SPARC, KRVIA (University in Mumbai) and ASF Sweden. The inventory and analysis were important tools to identify and understand the qualities in the existing settlements and to develop them in the new area. The plan components that were developed included recommendations for:
- Plan structure
- Environmental aspects
- Social aspects
- Planning process
During 2012 a final proposal was developed for the relocation site based on the analysis and plan components. In the beginning of 2014, ASF Sweden went to Cuttack to follow up their work and to discuss the continuation of the project.
