In a context of rapid urban growth, cities across the world are increasingly defined by inequality. RESOLUTION: REsilient Systems fOr Land Use TransportatION, a collaborative project between Brazilian and British academics, explores the impacts of unequal access to transport on different social groups in London and São Paulo. To this end, the team will build agent based models of how populations compete for travel and location. The results will be of relevance to a range of stakeholders, including policy makers, academics and planners, working on improving opportunities for marginalised groups through more equitable transport systems.

This project is co-funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).
