Clara Greed

Emerita Professor of Inclusive Urban Planning, UWE Bristol

Clara seeks to plan for ‘the city of everyday life’. This led her to research on public toilet provision but also involves work on transport planning, social infrastructure and sustainability at both the national and international level, especially in the Far East. She is a member of the World Toilet Organisation, the British Toilet Association and the British Standards committee BS6465 on Sanitary Installations.

From 2019 she has been an advisor on NERC research project with Manchester University on sustainability and sanitation (Research lead: Deljana Iossifova).
