Dr Pascale Hofmann
  • Lecturer
  • Development Planning Unit
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

Pascale is a Lecturer at the Development Planning Unit, UCL, and Programme Leader of the MSc in Environment and Sustainable Development

With a background in landscape planning and open space development my work focuses on urban environmental planning and management (EPM). Before entering academia I worked in planning offices and for an environmental charity. I have over 15 years of experience as an environmental planner conducting research, project work and academic teaching in: participatory EPM; Local Agenda 21 and urban sustainability; urban water supply and sanitation; urban waste reuse and urban/peri-urban agriculture; urban environmental justice and participatory research methods. I have undertaken fieldwork in Egypt, Ghana, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Tanzania, Sierra Leone and a number of European countries. 

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.
