Knowledge in Action for Urban Equality is funded by UKRI through the Global Challenges Research Fund GROW Call, and led by The Bartlett Development Planning Unit, UCL. 


With over half of the world’s populations living in urban areas, improving living conditions in every country depends on humanity’s capacity to address urban challenges.  


KNOW is a response to growing inequalities in cities. Three-quarters of cities are now more unequal than in 1996 (UN-Habitat). Inequality directly impacts the ability of cities to deliver prosperity and resilience for all their citizens. In both the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN-Habitat New Urban Agenda, addressing growing inequality is a priority. Urban equality is a multidimensional experience for urban dwellers encompassing access to income and services, recognition of diverse social identities, and inclusion in decisions that affect them.


The KNOW team is distributed across 6 work packages (WPs), made up of Co-Investigators (Co-Is) and partners across Asia, Africa and Latin America.
