PEAK Urban Theory of Change - Influencing policy and practice

Achieving sustainable cities requires a step change in the capacity of urban actors to anticipate and plan for challenges and opportunities of the future. PEAK Urban's vision is that such a step change leads to future policy, practice and investment decisions which enhance the development of 'inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable cities. (SDG11).

To contribute towards this outcome, PEAK Urban's Theory of Change commits to share research with external stakeholders and engage with decision makers around the implications of research. Influencing the Chaoyang District Five-Year Plan is just one example across the programme of how PEAK research and engagement has helped strengthen the capacity of cities to deal with the next generation of challenges.
