Spatial inequality

It is well established that urban form profoundly shapes the potential impact of social policies aimed at improving access to economic and social opportunities.

Yet, useful spatial data on the dynamics of places and movement dynamics remain underdeveloped. By using census and other survey and administrative data, this project maps spatial poverty and inequality to generate a better understanding of the dynamics of this form of inequality.

A working paper on the South African spatial inequality analysis has been published, while similar papers for Ghana and Kenya are being finalised.

On Africa Day 2021, ACEIR hosted a webinar where researchers from the South Africa node presented and discussed the findings.
