Aabhas GabaMaster of Public Policy (MPP)

I am an urban planner from New Delhi, India. I have worked extensively on public sector consulting projects under the auspices of KPMG. I have had the opportunity to be part of some of the transformational development schemes of the Government of India, such as Swachh Bharat Mission and Smart Cities, that have a direct impact on millions of lives across the country.

I have travelled and worked in geographically, socially and economically diverse regions. My works has spanned missions where the governments are striving to become an international model of good governance, to those where the citizens still struggle to meet basic necessities. My encounters with grassroots challenges in a developing country have shaped the way I think about development.

I am keen to shape urban infrastructure policies of India that will help manage urbanisation, better accommodate the people at the bottom of the pyramid and promote economic growth.
