The lead author of the report, Dr. Om Prakash Mathur, Senior Fellow and Head of Urban Studies at the Institute of Social Sciences (New Delhi), is a leading urban economist in India and the world. Dr. Mathur has played a major role in several important urban initiatives launched by the Indian Government and worked with the United Nations for decades on developmental issues globally.
