Cities that Work

The International Growth Centre works with policymakers in developing countries to promote inclusive and sustainable growth through pathbreaking research.


Cities that Work (CtW) is an IGC initiative that translates economic research and practical insight into clear urban policy guidance and support for policymakers.

The initiative is driven by the priorities of cities, and led by a Council of world-renowned researchers and policymakers - chaired by Ed Glaeser (Harvard).
