This paper delves into the challenges and goals of sustainable urban development in Bihar, India. Sustainable development, rooted in meeting present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own, necessitates a balanced approach considering environmental, social, and economic dimensions. The study identifies key challenges such as inadequate urban planning, limited access to public transportation, urban poverty, and slum proliferation. Drawing from empirical data, the goals of sustainable urban development are delineated, including ensuring decent, safe, and affordable housing for all, enhancing access to basic services, mitigating the impacts of natural disasters, preserving cultural heritage, and promoting inclusive urbanization. While the research methodology relies on secondary sources, the findings underscore the imperative for comprehensive strategies to address the multifaceted challenges and achieve sustainable urban development in Bihar. The paper concludes with a call for concerted efforts to realize the outlined goals and overcome the identified limitations, thereby fostering sustainable and inclusive urban development in Bihar.
