IUC outcomes are broadly outlined below:
  • The distillation of research questions of greatest urgency and potential to impact urban India, and discussion of how to address these. Most of these problem/ solution outcomes would suggest SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Replicable, and Time-Bound) goals and processes. However, it is also important to include visions and dreams that may take longer to refine to actionable agendas.
  • Depending upon participants’ interest, the formation of a research network to further research on urban India. The collaboration with Context Anchors and the conferences’ foci on unanswered questions and gaps in evidence makes the IUC a natural catalyst for working groups on the key themes.
