Urban Transformations at Habitat III in Quito
At Habitat III, Urban Transformations worked to give UK universities and their global community a seat at the table in Quito. Through participation in a range of events, including a side event organised by UT, ‘Transforming research into practices and policies: Dialogues on implementation and evaluation of the new urban agenda’, UT 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.
