Urban

Cities that work for people and planet: we focus on urban poverty and urban environmental issues, including rural-urban linkages, urban risk and urban crises, health, water and sanitation, inclusion, gender and disability, and shelter and basic services. We work with in-country partners to promote equitable, inclusive, sustainable and resilient urban development.
