The World Resources Institute (WRI) spent six years investigating economic, demographic, and resource challenges and how they widen gaps in urban services. We then synthesized a large body of evidence on how providing equitable access to urban services and opportunities—land, housing, transport, energy, water, sanitation, and secure employment—can lead to more economically prosperous and environmentally sustainable cities for all. 

WRI identified critical conditions that trigger, enable, or inhibit positive change at the city level. We also identified seven transformative ideas to help make a city more equitable and sustainable. 

This course will discuss the highlights of each transformation and provide case examples. The course is anticipated to take approximately an hour to complete. The course is self-paced and can be started and stopped at your convenience.
