Working together for urban progress

The African Cities Research Consortium is a collaborative approach to tackling complex problems in the continent’s rapidly changing cities.

About the AFRICAN CITIES RESEARCH CONSORTIUM

Cities are complex, dynamic, political systems. We bring together the right people and an understanding of the political economy of individual cities to identify and address the critical challenges they are facing.

Our aim is to generate insights and evidence that will help improve the living conditions, services and life chances of all city residents, particularly for disadvantaged communities.
