Adjunct professors Ian Palmer and Stephen Berrisford (leaders of ACC’s one-year research programme on urban land valuation and infrastructure finance) meet with specialists in London to draw together the different initiatives supported by DfID that focus on urban and finance in Sub-Saharan Africa.  The workshop will reduce risk of duplication or contradiction of findings emanating from the different initiatives.  It is also an opportunity for DfID experts to get a more synoptic view of the different initiatives.  For each of the initiatives there is also the benefit of sharing  data sources, perspectives and research themes.
