Country programme

The Coalition is establishing projects in China, Mexico, Ghana and Tanzania bringing together local organisations with the national governments to develop evidence-based ideas and new collaborative approaches to address the most important challenges facing city populations - from economic productivity and job creation to access to clean water, housing and quality public transport.

In Tanzania, the 6th most rapidly urbanising country in the world, the Coalition has worked with local organisations to establish Tanzania Urban Laboratory TULab which brings together a broad range of stakeholders to draw on the best evidence and together develop an assessment of the issues, a ‘National Urban Transition Assessment’, and support the development of a roadmap for the successful development of Tanzania’s major towns and cities.
