PROJECT
OVERVIEW & GOALS

Continuing urbanisation comes with new and intensified challenges around environment and social sustainability, particularly across the global South. Over the next decade finding solutions to urban challenges, that are most acutely felt in African, Asian and Latin American cities, will disproportionately determine sustainable development outcomes for the planet as a whole. 

In 2017, PEAK Urban linked with five research-intensive, multidisciplinary universities, around the globe, to develop fundamental changes in our approach to cities, to ensure that our researchers can both 'think like a city' and support cities that will be sustainable for the future.

As PEAK Urban comes to a close, we're delighted to be able to release the early impacts of our dissemination and engagement activities carried out by our partners in China, Colombia, India and South Africa.
