Pamela Puchalski
Senior Fellow, Resilient Communities Program
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: New York

I am an urban planner and community development expert. Working in the U.S. and internationally, I develop strategies to build the capacity and influence of civic organizations and local government.

A specialist in neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and city-to-city learning and collaboration, I have extensive experience implementing high-impact projects such as Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities and the Global Cities Initiative at Brookings Institution.

I am currently helping to launch The Africa Center in New York City, a new civic space bridging policy, business, and culture. Pamela holds an M.S. in Urban Planning from Columbia University and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Maryland with degrees in Economics and Literature.
