Urban innovation can help cities build more vibrant, equitable, resilient, and sustainable urban futures. Yet less is known about how cities innovate in the face of dynamic challenges or why transformations occur and are supported in some places and not others. This project seeks to understand how selected cities build their innovation and transformative capacity for urban sustainability. A secondary aim is to develop an action framework for supporting urban innovation and transformation capacity growth.
