Dr Tipple has had a part in formulating the GHS and wrote the chapter on housing in the main background document The World Cities Report, 2016. While there, he met School alumni Khaled Abdelhalim (Egypt), Joseph Macarthy (Sierra Leone) and Anna Muller (Namibia), all of whom are working on housing issues in their home countries.
