AAI and UNDP entered into a new partnership for community development


Airports Authority of India (AAI) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in India have recently signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) on a new partnership to enhance livelihood opportunities and provide better living standards to communities living close to airports in India. Airports boost local economic development by creating jobs within their ecosystems and attracting new businesses. However, due to unplanned land use and haphazard growth, economic development around airports remains low, creating slum like settlements in the airport vicinity. Addressing this, the partnership will focus on adopting a holistic ecosystem-based approach with human development at the centre and enable the environment for sustainable economic and social development, especially for women. Shri. Sanjeev Jindal, General Manager, Engineering and CSR, Airports Authority of India noted, “Following a holistic ecosystem-based approach that keeps human development at the center of its interventions, the partnership will work towards creating an enabling environment for sustainable economic and social development, with special focus on women and children.”
