Despite the challenge of being a hilly city coupled with the lack of available space, Kohima has emerged as one of the top 10 cities in India for its infant, toddler, caregiver-friendly interventions under the Nurturing Neighbourhoods Challenge, and the Streets4People Challenge.

The two challenges are initiatives of the Smart Cities Mission, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), in collaboration with the Bernard van Leer Foundation (BvLF) and technical partner World Resources Institute (WRI) India.

Niepukhrie Tepa, Nodal Officer for Nurturing Neighbourhoods & Urban Planner, Kohima Smart City Development Limited (KSCDL) told The Morung Express that “MoHUA launched this initiative basically to develop cities through the lens of toddlers, infants and caregivers.” He said cities took up some pilot interventions and projects with the idea to try them at a smaller scale; and if the interventions which are largely temporary or semi temporary in nature are working, convert them into more permanent structures.
