Karachi: TOD’s on GIN
  Karachi Strategic Plan Urban Metropolitan Metro Matrix Land Use Water Transport Green
  Karachi, one of the largest metropolises in the world, is addressing a substantial growth challenge that has to be addressed in the next Metropolitan Plan 2050. The development rationale of the 2020 Plan, though correct, has to be revised for the next dimension leap. Housing developments and land provision has to fit in a larger framework with a consistent and comprehensive vision based on water and environment rationale. Coordination of Green and Gray infrastructures is the way ahead: land-use, transport, water and environment must fit into a consistent system. Transit Oriented Developments (TOD’s) on Gray (mass public transport) and Green (water and environment) Infrastructure Networks have to be combined into a single metropolitan vision.
