The design of technological solutions to facilitate social interaction of urban residents is increasingly important for many countries. Mexico and South Africa are particularly prone to issues that stem from urban densification and a lack of adequate affordable housing. Governments look at ICT to take on a mediating and facilitating role. This proposal brings together the expertise of researchers from four continents in a two year collaborative study. The team will examine local case studies to prepare an international comparison of local community networking approaches.
