While the world is becoming more urbanized, the need for research and expertise is drastically growing in order to understand the development of cities, especially in developing countries.
The Urban Research Network is intended to be a place where researchers and practitioners from all over the world can meet "virtually", discuss, share ideas and documents, and create networks that will address urban issues in developing countries. The starting point of this network was the World Bank’s 4th Urban Research Symposium on urban land use and land markets, Washington, DC, May 2007. The Network grew significantly in the lead up to the 5th Urban Research Symposium on Cities and Climate Change: Responding to an Urgent Agenda, Marseille, France, June 2009.
