Global Report


Over a five-year period, PEAK Urban ran more than 40 research projects through our hubs in China, Colombia, India, South Africa and the UK, in a pioneering partnership, with each harnessing the four constituent elements of PEAK in different combinations as the context required.

Our Global Report introduces the approach and findings of PEAK Urban over this five year period, showcasing important aspects of our research. Across urban themes spanning sustainability, migration, governance, economic growth, and health and wellbeing, the PEAK lens reveals novel perspectives that can guide impactful interventions, including policymaking, placemaking and investments.
