Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability and Health (CUSSH) is a four-year program that will run from 2018 – 2021. It aims to deliver strategically vital research on the complex connections between urban development and health within city systems.

CUSSH will utilize multidisciplinary methods to develop critical evidence on how to achieve the transformations that cities need to address the environmental challenges of the 21st century. In addition, it will provide transferable evidence on how to accelerate actions essential to achieving large-scale changes in sectors such as energy, transport, water, sanitation, and housing. The program will embed public engagement, training and co-generation of research throughout its duration.
