  Dr A Ollauri, Dr K Munro, Dr S B Mickovski
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019

  Using child maintenance as a tool to enhance the circumstances, outcomes and wellbeing of lone mothers and children.
  Research Group: Institute for Social Policy, Housing and Equalities Research
  Prof G Bramley

When lone-mothers receive child maintenance the risk of poverty reduces and the poverty gap closes by 30% in the UK.

  Understanding the impact of building regulations and planning policies on achieving sustainable and resilient cities

  Interaction between different categories of road user

  Community based water management institutions for delivering water and health

Until recently community based water institutions have been justified mainly on financial grounds and as mechanisms for delivering services in a context where state institutions have been withdrawing from this space due to neoliberal policy changes.
  Validating Apparent Urban Areas - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr LJ Wolf, Dr S Fox
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The challenge of managing and reducing domestic waste is a growing sustainability problem for governments and Local Authorities. Recycling rates are increasing, but this is not enough to address the environmental challenges faced by our throwaway material culture.
