Ian Mell: two new papers published on Green Infrastructure

2 August 2017

This summer, Ian has had a number of new papers published, including one on community volunteering within green infrastructure projects, and one on resilience in Ahmedabad, India.

Ian Mell, lecturer in Environmental and Landscape Planning, joined The University of Manchester in 2017 from the University of Liverpool. His career has included a variety of academic, practitioner and contract consultancy roles in the UK, Europe and more recently in India and China. These have enabled him to bring together local government and practical policy-making/delivery experiences into the teaching and research environment through a practical understanding of how policy is formed, how decision-making occurs, and how implementation is delivered. 

Ian recently participated in discussions at the Newton-funded Renaturing Cities: Theories, Strategies and Methodologies workshop at the Federal University of Goias, Goiania, Brazil (more details are available at http://www.port.ac.uk/portsmouth-school-of-architecture/renaturing-cities/)
