CAUL – The Clean Air and Urban Landscape hub

This is where I work now:

Specifically, I am employed to deliver project 3:

Urban Greening for liveability and biodiversity project

Green spaces in urban areas are essential to liveability. They provide health benefits for residents by improving recreational spaces, reduce energy costs through a reduction in the ‘heat island’ effect and enhance the environmental values of cities with habitats for biodiversity.

This project is studying a range on urban greening strategies in order to improve urban greening practices and management. A range of trial sites across Australia are involved with this project.

Specific subprojects include evaluating existing green spaces and their vulnerabilities to climate change; establishing an Action Research program for urban greening; and understanding the best mechanisms to increase and protect green space and urban forests in Australian cities.
