Many contemporary cities are beginning to unravel and exhibit limited capacity to accommodate sustainable structures and practices. Learning how to enable sustainable transitions for cities that include adaptive mechanisms to respond to existing and new challenges requires an understanding of the myriad transitions urban systems will face.
To meet these challenges, we have established an interdisciplinary Urban Sustainability Research Coordination Network (RCN) that will integrate and synthesize urban research while incubating solutions-oriented products.
This website provides detailed information about our research and working groups, including profile information of our network members.
