Urban Analytics

Deepen insights, make clear evidence-based decisions and calibrate intelligently towards your goals.

What We Do

MI’s urban analytics offers a nuanced understanding of the urban context, to set a strong foundation for measuring and benchmarking.

Our approach syngergises MORROW’s global experience in planning projects with our empirical research. MI evaluates measurements for liveability which power our diagnostic and tracking tools that are grounded on practicality and sensibility.

Urban Development Indicators

Translating Urban Complexitiess

Quantifying urban issues can offer a comprehensive, objective view of the various elements of a city.

At MI, we specialise in identifying, measuring, and distilling intricate urban phenomena into clear, actionable indicators. We prioritise accurate and meaningful data so that the unique characteristics and subtleties of cities are appropriately reflected.

Index Advisory and Toolkits​

Driving Informed Urban Strategy and Development

To maneuver through today’s multifaceted urban landscapes, cities need more than quick-fixes and panacea; they need specially designed solutions tailored to their own characteristics, aspirations and challenges.

MI undertakes quantitative and qualitative research to systematically construct indices with the right structure and parameters that have been rigorously tested.

With a grounded understanding of a city’s performance in its prevailing conditions, we prescribe structured pathways for it to meet its goals based on its own development journey.

Benchmarking Methods

Assessing and Charting the Path to Urban Excellence

Benchmarking offers cities a lucid reflection of their current status in relation to their urban aspirations, global standards or to other cities.

MI dives deep into the urban intricacies to determine actual gaps and underlying issues. We equip cities with clarity on the best steps to take based on logical comparative assessments and guide them in refining their urban benchmarks.

Analysis and Extrapolation

Inquiring into the Future

Though cities may have developed roadmaps to reach the standards set for themselves, they must ensure feasibility and resilience in the face of disruptions and crises.

MI evaluates policy and planning mechanisms through the methodical application of statistical models, such as difference-in-differences, correlation and factor analysis. We also stress-test our strategies against potential trends and scenarios that might impact desired outcomes.

For Urban Planning and Development

Advancing Well-Balanced
Planning and Development

A good grasp on the myriad elements that constitute urban liveability, including nuances in infrastructure, the intricate facets of community engagement and environmental sustainability, can allow for deliberate decision making through which sustained progress is made on all fronts. 

The result?  Urban spaces that don’t just exist but thrive, striking a harmonious balance between growth and quality of life.

Global Impact

IGOs can benefit from a structured framework for performance assessment and improvement given their broad reach.

Through MI’s comparative analysis, IGOs can identify context-appropriate ways (based on specific development goals and challenges) to adapt best practice, build consensus and scale up action.

For ESG Disclosure and Reporting

Navigating the New Norm in Sustainable Reporting with Deeper Insights

As the focus on environmental disclosure grows, it is imperative that firms demonstrate their value and impact with strong reporting mechanisms in place.

In turn, they facilitate the prioritisation of areas requiring urgent change as well as the alignment with global sustainability goals and standards such as the SDGs and Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
