Initiated by the IFLA Africa, Asia Pacific and Middle East (AAPME) regions, this is an International award for Landscape Design and planning recognition.
VSPB Associates has won an outstanding award for the project 'Eco-Restoration of Wazirabad Bundh' in Social and Community Heath Category. “The project exceeds all area of expectations in term of quality, standards and thought leadership of Design and Practice, making it an exemplary project and benchmark for others”
Eco-Restoration of Wazirabad Bundh is an excellent example of transforming a neglected corridor in a dense urban setting (where open space is at a premium) through partnership and considerable community engagement. This citizen driven initiative by a local NGO focused on rebuilding a deteriorated forest and waterway as a linear barrier-free nature park. It is a wonderful project which no doubt changed the lives of those in the locality; it is a project which deserves a recognition both for its engagement with the community and for its reimagining of an old infrastructure. The use of native planting shows a clear respect for the natural flora
'Eco-Restoration of Wazirabad Bundh' was judged winner of the WRI CK2017 award in the Civil Society Category. We congratulate Initiators: I am Gurgaon, Forest Department, Haryana and Corporate Sponsor, American Express for their commendable efforts.
