This discussion paper compiles ideas generated at a workshop hosted by Peet, The Department of Communities and the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) on 13 and 14 June 2018. These ideas focus on the Brabham development project in the north east urban growth corridor...
This study introduces a framework for synthesizing building and transport energy consumption data with the Local Climate Zones (LCZs) classification system. Drawing on preliminary results, we explain how this approach can provide opportunities for standardizing urban carbon accounting.
With the accelerating pace of urbanisation around the world, the planning, development and operation of buildings and precincts have become increasingly important with respect to energy use and the associated carbon footprint of the modern built environment. Over recent decades, much effort, both in research...
Pressures for urban redevelopment are intensifying in all large cities. A new logic for urban development is required – green urbanism – that provides a spatial framework for directing population and investment inwards to brownfields and greyfields precincts, rather than outwards to the greenfields
Abstract The WGV project is an infill residential development in a middle suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Its urban planning innovation is in its attempt to demonstrate net zero carbon as well as other sustainability goals set by urban planning processes such as community...
Urban residence is associated with a higher risk of some psychiatric disorders, but the underlying drivers remain unknown. There is increasing evidence that the level of exposure to natural environments impacts mental health, but few large-scale epidemiological studies have assessed the general existence and importance...
This report tracks progress towards the various targets set out in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 – Clean Water and Sanitation – using the SDG global indicators.
Although urban areas cover only 3% of the earth’s land surface, they are responsible for over 70% of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE) from energy use. Cities are versatile, dynamic and complex. Therefore, implementations of low carbon initiatives at city scale are challenging...
When we think about public spaces, we often imagine large open areas such as squares and parks. The humble footpath is overlooked, although it is an equally if not more important public space for urban social life. Every day, most people will at some point...
HighlightsThe effect modification of green space on the hospitalization risk of air pollution was assessed. Amount of green space was measured by the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index. The hospitalization risk of air pollution was less in areas with more green space. The...
