Urban Transformations at Habitat III in Quito
At Habitat III, UK-based scholarship remains at the very cusp of urban thought in international development circles, building on its rich critical, and practical tradition in a myriad of uncharted ways.
Urban Transformations is working to give UK universities and their global community a seat at the table in Quito. We are highlighting how ESRC-funded research is working to refine the New Urban Agenda in accordance with the latest understanding of how cities can become more than just places and catalysts for a sustainable planet.
