CASUMM undertakes research, production of materials and activism on a range of themes related to urban development, including the economic structure of cities, governance and institutions, land, infrastructure and urban environments.

To reflect the complexity of the terrain, CASUMM explores multiple forms for representing and distributing the work in the public domain. In addition to working papers and books, CASUMM promotes forms such as film and photography, animation, multimedia installations and online resources. CASUMM envisions the possibility of reaching a wider audience through such diverse means. All of the material produced by CASUMM is accessible in the public domain.

CASUMM as an organisation has discontinued its activities since May 2008, after completing its current projects and is now no longer functioning.

As the implementation of the urban reforms agenda speedily unfolds and its impacts are felt in many fields ongoingly, the material on this website will remain and more research studies or information will be added. We hope you will keep visiting often………..
