CITIES overview

A central focus of KNOW is co-production of knowledge through partnerships of equivalence. This means working and learning collaboratively in active partnership with a multi-disciplinary cohort of international partners. In doing so, KNOW helps 

  • co-create localised research,

  • expand capacity building,

  • and bridge knowledge gaps and initiate innovative collective action through local and regional urban learning hubs.  

​ 

We collaborate with 12 x City Partners across Latin America, Africa, and South East Asia.  

KNOW represents an incipient global network of city and regional partners focused on urban equality in local and global challenges

KNOW's City Partners are central to ensuring knowledge is co-produced, shared, and turned into action, which can be used to inform policy and practice, along with the education of future urban practitioners.

Working in 12 cities across the global South (Barranquilla, Havana, Lima and San José in Latin America; Da Nang, Jaipur, Nakhon Sawan, Yangon and Yogyakarta in Asia; and Dar es Salaam, Kampala and Free - town in Africa) KNOW seeks to find effective ways of delivering prosperity, tackling extreme poverty, and building urban resilience by working directly with local actors. Our City Partners are core to the programme, building on connections and partnerships the DPU has developed over many years. As such, these partnerships with equivalence are central to ensuring local actors are meaningfully involved at the forefront of KNOW research, helping to shape pathways to urban equality.
