Who we are

We are a global network of experts in the field of urban sustainability and sustainable urban form. We are based in academic institutions in India, UK, Europe, US, Africa and Asia and in urban development and professional bodies in India and Africa.

What we do

CityForm facilitates the sharing of experience, expertise and knowledge to identify arising research challenges and opportunities within the context of rapidly growing cities.

Why this is important

Huge population growth in and around many global cities is causing these cities to change dramatically in terms of their; size, shape, density, land uses, spatial structure and building types.

This increased urban development can have a very negative impact on the quality of life of the residents of these cities. It also contributes greatly to massive increases in global CO2 emissions.

Our aim

Currently, the principal goal of the CityForm research network is to conduct long-term collaborative research into sustainable urban form in rapidly growing cities in India and Africa.
