I am Pamela, an Architect from the University of Technology of Monterrey, Mexico.
Since January 2018, I work at UN-Habitat, particularly on Integrating health in Urban and Territorial Planning (UTP) coordinating the program, delivering technical advisory to practitioners, local and national gov. and worked with key global partners. More in detail, I had supported Bolivia, Argentina, and Mexico on their National and Subnational Urban Policies development. I had worked on advancing UTP processes through capacity building internationally. At the city level, I work with the Global Public Space Programme at UN-Habitat and partners on citywide public spaces strategies for different cities in Latin America. Moreover, I have a particular focus on building healthy environments.
I had collaborated with WHO on developing a Sourcebook on Integrating health in UTP and a Compendium of Inspiring Practices. Personally, I have an interest in delivering training and capacity-building activities on the topic. I had organized a series of different workshops. Previously, I worked at the Public Space Authority of Mexico City where I was part of the design team, assessing and designing public spaces. And at the Municipal Institute of Planning in Chihuahua, Mexico where I worked on a neighborhood master plan.
