Geoff is proud to announce that Emma Johnson has joined GPA as an associate as of March 2013. Emma has recently completed a master’s in International Planning and Sustainable Development from the University of Westminster and returned from an internship with UN-Habitat in Bangkok. She is particularly interested in investigating rights-based approaches to development, land tenure issues and mechanisms for effective urban governance.
Geoff wishes to congratulate Isabel on her appointment to the World Bank’s South Asia Development Effectiveness unit. Isabel has been helpful in editing a chapter on the political economy of land markets which Geoff has been completing for a book being edited by Paul Lindert and to be published shortly by Earthscan. She will be based in Washington but working on the South Asia region. Isabel is due to start work in May.
