U4V adopts a case-study approach in order to favour the comparison of similar UBH in different economic, social, political and cultural contexts, testing common practices and/or similar financial schemes as a proxy of existing benchmarks and/or strong cultural influences in planning and development.
In addition, going on-field helps U4V to interact with local communities, disseminate innovative thinking and support them to explore alternative social trajectories in an adaptive, forward-looking manner.
