This prologue establishes the case for comparative study of urban neighbourhoods in cities in the developing countries in Asia and Africa to help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We first outline the debates about sustainable development and sustainable cities. We then discuss the urgent nee for comparative and multi-disciplinary research on the internal physical and socio-economic structures of cities and sustainable issues at the neighbourhood level.
