Eco-City Action Plan for Sangli-Miraj-Kupwad (SMK), Maharashtra was an initiative of the Hon. Cabinet Minister of Rural Development, Mr. Jayantrao Patil. The main focus of this project was to achieve sustainable development in SMK by integrating environmental, social and economic considerations. The SMK region showed an impressive range of past initiatives and actions towards urban environmental issues, but the desired positive impact was observed to be rather low. One of the factors for this low impact was the project‐centric approach and absence of a programmatic framework. A program such as Eco‐City was therefore envisaged to provide the needed overarching framework. EMC was contracted for this project by Maharashtra pollution control Board (MPCB).

The entire action plan was participatory – beginning from awareness raising sessions to creation of a website called ‘Eco Voices’ where citizens could identify impactful initiatives as well as raise concerns. The plan was presented to municipal council and directed the corporation to undertake implementations. EMC also provided support towards accessing funds for project implementation.
