Planning, Environmental Assessment and Management

PEAM is an international research group addressing key planning challenges, from how oceans are managed through to the role of evidence in understanding development impacts.

Drawing on our strong heritage as the world’s first planning school, we continue to push the boundaries of planning knowledge through close collaboration with professional planners and policy makers internationally. 

Our three research centres draw together academics from beyond Geography and Planning to provide inter-disciplinary insights

There are many examples of how our research impacts real world planning. This is just one taster of how our research collaborates with practitioners to tackle some of the biggest planning challenges and support societal needs.

In addition to these research clusters, PEAM is also in partnership through the University of Liverpool with Changing Streams. Changing Streams is a “bridge between academia and industry to drive and effect change and reduce our plastic footprint”.
