An introduction to Plan International’s Urban Research Series: Learning for better urban programming
Starting in 2022 we will publish a series of urban research reports, to learn from past experiences and share learning from urban programming internally and externally.
The Urban Research Series is intended as the basis of ongoing analysis and learning from Plan International’s extensive urban programming and influencing activities. The research will support the expansion and scale-up of urban work, enable innovative partnerships with external stakeholders, and support the realisation of the New Urban Agenda within the Sustainable Development Goals.
