The GCRF Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC) is an international consortium of nine research partners aiming to strengthen capacity to address urban, health and education challenges in neighbourhoods across fast-growing cities in Africa and Asia. It has been funded by UK Research and Innovation as part of the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund.
As part of SHLC’s commitment to extend its work to the capacity strengthening of researchers in the global south, we developed the Capacity Development Acceleration Fund (CDAF). This scheme has supported a visiting research fellowship programme, as well as pilot research, knowledge mobilisation and research management projects, to help tackle urban, health and education challenges in neighbourhoods across fast-growing cities in developing countries.
We are now very pleased to be able to announce a series of three webinars in which the 19 projects that we funded will report on their work. In each of these webinars our CDAF projects from Africa, Asia and Latin America will make short presentations of their work, followed by input by a respondent, and questions from those who attend.
