Conceptual Architecture
NIGUM aims to achieve its super ordinate goal by “synthesizing competencies with promotion of clean, green and livable inclusive cities”. It also needs to address issues related to
  • Responsiveness
  • Commitment
  • Awareness
  • Infusion of scientific temper
  • Accountability
Urban governance encompasses multiple actors, processes and relationships including the capacity of the “power center” of political and administrative system to cope up with the emerging challenges of equity and sustainable development. At present there is no single national level multi-disciplinary institute in the country conducting action research and analytical studies on interactions - between the state, the civil society and the market; institutions and its delivery mechanisms vis-a-vis rules, legislations, and procedures; partnerships between various actors and sectors of development and value-based governance.

Now it is demand of the time to make explicit attempts for addressing the issues of change management and resistance to reforms on the part of political and administrative system and amongst other stakeholders. The use of e- Governance tools has helped in demystifying complicated government processes and procedures, simplifying service delivery systems, improving information management and tracking the performance of public authorities. Therefore, periodically documenting e-governance best practices and process reforms for technology application and its dissemination for cross learning could play a pivotal role in improving governance. Hence, it is imperative to popularize and universalize the benefits of technology and conceive “NIGUM” as one stop shop for inclusive urban governance in the region.
