Arzoo Kumari

I have completed my Bachelors in Planning from the School of Planning and Architecture, Delhi. As part of my compulsory internship, I have worked with various organizations like Smart City India Foundation (SCIF), Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Gwalior Municipal Corporation, etc. I have won National Level competitions in Planning (NOSPlan) and also the prestigious Apoorva Rustagi Scholarship Award for women in Planning 2020.

My interest lies in policy analysis, social development, and governance. In my 2 years of work experience, I have worked for policy adoption, compliance, and enforcement in collaboration with stakeholders at national and sub-national levels. My major work area was to facilitate the implementation of the energy conservation residential building code, Eco-Niwas Samhita (ENS) in the country. Also, I have a huge interest in working towards realising the carbon emission mitigation potential and energy conservation impacts of nature-based solutions in the growing cities.

In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, interacting with strangers, traveling & exploring new places, painting & crafting, and watching documentaries.
