Mozambique Urban Research Forum
07 - 08 June Maputo

A research project has been developed by IHS, on behalf of Cities Alliance, with the purpose of filling crucial theoretical and evidence gaps related to the comparative merits of planned expansion and density, by collecting and analyzing data on cities and urban land expansion in Mozambique, as well as testing the relevant theories/models and feeding the results into the current academic and policy debates at the national and international level. This research project entitled, "The urban expansion and the compactness debate in the context of Mozambique", has as main research question the following: “In a resource-scarce context, such as in Mozambique, what would be a good balance between making room for land expansion while following the compact city approach? What hybrid model could lead to more sustainable yet at the same time, inclusive, well serviced and affordable cities?”

 The indicated research question can be addressed both from a national as well as from an international perspective. However, the clear focus of the research is to inform the national research community in Mozambique on the state of the arts in the areas of urbanization and urban development.

This theme will be the focus of the discussion at the FUN-P in Maputo from 7-8 June.

This is an invitation to the national and international research community and it is not limited to academics alone.
