Urban Poverty & Social/Environmental Justice

Our work in this area is related to our understanding of children’s development in relation to qualities of the physical environment and to our knowledge of effective participatory strategies for supporting residents, including children and youth, in community development. A significant portion of this overseas work has been carried out in collaboration with the Human Settlements section of the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) in London. Sheridan Bartlett, Research Associate with CERG, also serves as a Research Associate IIED and is Managing Editor of the journal produced by them, “Environment and Urbanization“.
