This chapter presents the findings of the work of the Centre for Sustainable, Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC) that is funded via UK Research and Innovation as part of the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). The chapter is based on case study research conducted in two cities in each of the seven countries in the Global South. The cities are Cape Town and Johannesburg (South Africa), Dar es Salaam and Dodoma (Tanzania), Kigali and Huye (Rwanda), Delhi and Madurai (India), Dhaka and Khulna (Bangladesh), Chongqing and Datong (China) and Manila and Batangas (Philippines). Based on an analysis of data drawn from planning and urban development policy documents in the respective countries over the last two decades, the case studies identify key ideas and policies that have shaped the delivery of public services, especially education and health care. The chapter focusses on four themes: urban inequalities, urban planning policies, understanding health and well-being and learning cities.
