Human settlements research group

IIED's Human Settlements programme works through partnerships to create towns and cities that are sustainable, prosperous, resilient, healthy and safe, and inclusive and equitable. We do this by generating high quality evidence, shaping debates, building coalitions, and influencing policies and practices at multiple scales.

Key programmes of the group's work can be found below underneath the staff listing, while all projects can be found within urban.
