Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Puri on Thursday gave away awards to the winners of the Smart Solutions Challenge and Inclusive Cities Awards, 2022.

The Belagavi Smart City’s system for those with disabilities to access education and healthcare was awarded the top prize in the category of implemented solutions.

The awards were an initiative of the National Institute of Urban Affairs and the United Nations in India for addressing the city-level challenges of accessibility and the inclusion for persons with disabilities, women, girls and senior citizens, a statement said.

“I am thoroughly impressed at the creative capacity of the innovative solutions as well as their potential to change lives of persons with disabilities, women and older persons,” Mr. Puri said.

The challenge, which was launched in April, received over 100 entries, of which the top 10 were identified as winners, the statement said.

These solutions will be instrumental in integrating universal design, which will help achieve Sustainable Development Goals’ target 11.7- to provide safe, inclusive and accessible, green and public spaces for all vulnerable communities
