Research that informs how cities can be more equitable, sustainable and accountable by providing integrated planning and design solutions for rapid population growth and urbanisation.
Given rapid urbanisation and population growth, we will assist the public and private sectors to transform how cities are planned, built, and governed to achieve healthy sustainable urban development.
We will focus on understanding the policy world we are trying to influence, through co-designing research with policy-makers and practitioners, and disseminating our findings through public, private and non-government partners.
Working with external stakeholders is key to creating impact in this area. We believe that working with outside partners will build in relevance, whether working on research with local governments or with international organisations, such as the World Health Organisation.
