The Centre for Cities, established in 2005, is an independent, non-partisan research organisation and the first port of call for UK and international decision makers seeking to understand and improve UK cities’ economic performance. The Centre’s main goal is to understand how and why economic growth and change takes place in British cities and to produce research that helps cities improve their performance. Working for Centre for Cities Ed Clarke has produced a number of reports, including ‘how cities go low carbon while supporting economic growth’ that can be downloaded here.
