More people now live in cities and urban areas than any other; the imperative to improve the lives of all urban dwellers has never been greater. By 2030 globally, around 1 billion more people will live in cities resulting from the combination of population growth and urban migration. The provision of resilient, inclusive and sustainable future cities to address these expanded populations is an example of a multidimensional and complex development challenge that requires radical new thinking.
Whilst the increasing rate of urbanisation creates many well-documented problems, it also creates opportunities for transformative change. Responding to this challenge, the GCRF Hub for Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Cities (RISC) will provide world-class interdisciplinary research to drive the transformation of cities of the future in low and middle income countries.
We are actively seeking partnerships in cities in low and middle income countries. In response to the universality of the SDGs, we also welcome partnerships in any high income city able to cover their own costs.
