Dr Ian Mell is a Lecturer in Planning & Civic Design at The University of Liverpool. He teaches and researches a variety of green infrastructure and planning issues evaluating the opportunities and disconnects between planning strategy, policy and practice.
His research investigates the nature and ‘value’ of green infrastructure investment in a number of geographical contexts to better understand how innovative and integrated landscape management can address social, economic and ecological issues. This included recent work on the Interreg IVB Valuing Attractive Landscapes in the Urban Economy (VALUE) project.
Ian’s current work reflects on how green infrastructure is being positioned as one of the ‘go-to’ approach to planning for sustainable urban planning in the USA, India and China.
Outside of academia Ian has experience of green infrastructure practice through working with advocacy organisations (Community Forests in North-East England) and as a local government officer in Cambridgeshire.
