About Us

Partners from Tanzania, Kenya, China and the UK are coming together to build capacity so development corridor decision-making can be based on sound scientific evidence and effective use of planning tools and procedures.

Funded by the UK Research Council’s Global Challenges Research Fund the Development Corridors Partnership began in October 2017 and will end in December 2021. The Partnership will build capacity to address concerns about development corridors by encouraging scientific collaboration and stakeholder engagement in key issues of corridor planning and management.

DELIVERING EFFECTIVE RESEARCH AND CAPACITY BUILDING TO IMPROVE DEVELOPMENT CORRIDOR DECISION-MAKING

Our Work

Our interdisciplinary team is working in various areas to undertake research, build capacity, provide guidance and engage with decision makers and stakeholders.

MODELLING & SCENARIOS

The partnership will use modelling and scenario analysis to investigate and measure the expected and possible impacts of corridors in terms of economics, natural capital and ecosystem service provision, and social coherence.

SOCIAL AND POLITICAL RESEARCH

To successfully integrate economic, social and environmental outcomes in future corridors, we will investigate the practical mechanisms through which local communities are included in corridor development processes, and the emerging socio-economic outcomes.

CLIMATE RESILIENT CORRIDORS

Development corridors need to show resilience in the face of a changing climate, through the use of the best available climate adaptation technologies and an understanding of how climate change interacts with future land use scenarios.
