David Palma – NESTSMX Field Team
I am a sociologist and I have a master's degree in Urban and Environmental studies at El Colegio de México. For the past two years I have been working in the local Government at Mexico City, on subjects related with Human Rights, Water and Housing. I've been working closely with social organizations, and several governmental offices to coordinate the implementation of Social Housing programs and the availability of water inside this projects.
I have worked in several social research projects related to Urban Development, Security and Risk and the Environment in Mexico City. My research has focused on collective action and democracy around megaprojects in Mexico City such as the newest subway lines and the Supervía, a highly contested megaproject by the civic society in the City. My major interest is in urban development in countries such as Mexico and the sustainable development. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
