Work Package 1

 

city knowledge
co-production

overview

Work Package 1 addresses the overarching research question: ‘How can knowledge
co-production support the development and implementation of policies and planning that will put the KNOW partner-cities onto trajectories towards urban equality?’.

“WP1 focuses on knowledge co-production as a tool to achieve urban equality and assesses how it can support the development and implementation of policies and planning in cities” 

This enquiry is being grounded through multidisciplinary co-produced research that has been developed and prioritised by the various city teams in Dar es Salaam, Kampala, Freetown, Lima and Havana. As well as a network of four Asian cities (Da Nang, Nakhon Sawan, Yogyakarta and Yangon) through a partnership with the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights (ACHR).

One strand of Work Package 1 work centres on the partners’ city-specific research and by working closely with the various teams, WP1 collectively operationalises co-working and co-learning spaces that provides support to city-teams, and further coordinates of the work of the city-teams with the other work packages in the project.

 

Another strand of WP1 interrogates the role and significance of knowledge co-production in addressing the development challenges outlined in the cities.

 

Through selected in-depth case studies in partnership with the city teams, WP1 will present a wider reflection and discussion on how knowledge co-production means within the context of the project and how it is mobilised, providing a practical outlook and opportunity to document details such as the process, varieties and strategies of knowledge co-production, particularly in the context of capacity building.

 

The WP1 research also creates a space for a critical discussion on perceived challenges to the process and sustenance of knowledge co-production in a multi-disciplinary and multi-national project such as KNOW.
