OUR MISSION: TO ENRICH POLICY-MAKING WITH INNOVATIVE APPROACHES USING SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY FOR A SUSTAINABLE, SECURE AND INCLUSIVE SOCIETY

Infrastructure

CSTEP has endeavoured to address the complexity of problems that form the spectrum of social infrastructures - physical and public services through knowledge from many perspectives and disciplines. With recent dramatic improvements in technology and computing power, we now have an unprecedented chance to aid and study the process of decision making by using computational models, simulations and serious games for analysis.

Ongoing Projects
Decision Making Tool for assessing alternative strategies in Sanitation
Developing a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) decision support tool to facilitate an integrated approach to the sanitation investment planning process for urban local bodies in India. 
Developing a Smart City concept
The objective of this work is to bridge the current knowledge gap and facilitate informed policy and decision making on smart cities under the National Sustainable Habitat and Smart City Mission (NSHSCM). 
Understanding the Food Supply Chain
Examining the agriculture and food supply chain in India using dynamic systems as well as Agent Based Models (ABMs). The issues related to the production and storage of food grains is being examined. This study and simulation exercise is expected to provide insights into the appropriate size and location of warehouses across the country as well as mechanisms for assuring a fair price to farmers for their produce.
