Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods

 

At the Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC), funded via UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) as part of the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), we work to generate such understanding and evidence to tackle the challenges of social and economic unsustainability in fast-growing urban centres in Africa and Asia. To do so, we adopt a novel approach: instead of studying and/or comparing countries, we utilise an interdisciplinary, city- and neighbourhood-level lens to systematically investigate the complex connections and relationships between urban (SDG11), health (SDG3), and education (SDG4) challenges in neighbourhoods.
