International Network for Transport and Accessibility in Low Income Communities (INTALInC)
INTALInC has been established to build lasting partnerships to develop research promoting urban transport systems that can meet the travel needs of low income populations in cities in the Global South. INTALInC brings together primary partners from nine institutions in the UK, Africa (including Uganda) and East Asia with a specific focus on finding innovative ways to address the mobility needs of the most vulnerable populations in the network’s four partnering countries.

Strengthening Urban Engagement of Universities in Asia and Africa (SUEUAA)
This project is funded by the British Academy under the Cities and Infrastructure programme of its Global Challenges Research Fund – the same programme as i-CMiiST. The project, led by the University of Glasgow, includes six international partners from Iran, Iraq, the Philippines, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
The project addresses a core problem in emerging economies of strengthening the urban engagement role of universities, and ways they contribute to developing sustainable cities in the context of the major social, cultural, environmental and economic challenges facing the global south. It uses benchmarking tools as its principal methods, and seeks to strengthen the capacity of universities to contribute to city resilience towards natural and human-made disasters.
