Research summary

My research lies within the field of Urban Environmental Planning and Management (EPM). Particular interests include:

Service provision

I am particularly concerned with trajectories of urban water poverty and how current deficits are understood by different stakeholders.  I am interested in exploring the scope for adequate and equitable access to water and sanitation and the sustainable use of resources with focus on the urban and peri-urban context.

Reuse of urban waste and urban/peri-urban agriculture

I have been looking at the reuse of urban waste in peri-urban farming practices and the role it plays in the livelihood strategies of poor people.

Urban environmental justice

Main concerns centre around access, use and appropriation of open spaces by communities and how this can contribute to an increased involvement in local policy and planning processes.
