Citizen Matters Special Projects
Making our cities better places to live in requires better understanding of urban issues, more data to drive solutions, synergies in attempts towards improvement, and sharing of best practices.
This in turn calls for sustained coverage and interpretation of initiatives, or lack of them, across cities, related to each issue in focus.
To that end, our ‘Special Projects’ series takes up one key urban topic or theme at a time, and explores it in depth — through reportage, data, interactions and op-eds.
