Innovation in Development Practice

ULI fosters innovation, but looks to practical experience and knowledge sharing to advance the state of the art.

Sharing Knowledge through Applied Research

“This Innovation in Development Practice pillar refers primarily to activities, at various scales, that are considered site-specific.
