Global understanding of cities boosted by multi-million pound grant
The HSRC is part of the Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (CSHLC), an international research consortium that will look at urban economic and social change. The CSHLC will be administered at Glasgow University with partners located in South Africa, China, Tanzania, Rwanda, India, Bangladesh and Philippines.
In responding to the ever increasing levels of poverty and inequality in South Africa, the HSRC has defined as its guiding theme for the next five years: ‘poverty and inequality: diagnosis, prognosis, responses.’
As part of understanding the drivers of poverty and inequality, the HSRC will focus on understanding the economic and social dynamics of cities and neighbourhoods.
