GDI to establish the African Cities Research Consortium
Researchers from the Global Development Institute have been awarded £32 million to establish the African Cities Research Consortium. Led by Professor Diana Mitlin, the African Cities Consortium (ACRC) will tackle complex problems in some of Africa’s fastest growing urban areas.
Over 6 years, research will generate practical insights designed to help catalyse positive change for communities across the continent. It is funded by the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
