Resilient & Liveable Leh

We are happy to announce that we will be supporting the Indian city of Leh in achieving its Vision 2025.

As part of a European Union project starting in 2018, BORDA will train government officials of Leh, residents of the city, and the 250,000+ tourists who visit every year on creating a more environmentally friendly, resilient and sustainable urban space.

BORDA along with Ladakh Ecological Development Group (LEDeG) has set out to support Leh’s administrative body Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) in:

  1. training its officials and strengthen institutions to conceptualize and develop Leh as a resilient and liveable mountain city;
  2. preparing implementation plans to aggressively improve public services that have deep environmental impact (sewage treatment, waste management, green public spaces and transportation); and
  3. educating its 30,000 residents and 250,000+ tourists on issues around climate change.

BORDA will support the Indian city of Leh in achieving its Vision 2025 to create a more environmentally friendly, resilient and sustainable urban space
