In Australia more than 80 per cent of the population already live in urban areas but the population of major cities is projected to double in size in the next 40 years.
Cities around the world have recognised the importance of the incorporation of vegetation into urban structure and function. Green infrastructure includes trees, parks, water sensitive urban design (such as wetlands and vegetated river banks), and green roofs, walls and facades.
The generation and preservation of these urban landscapes is the current focus area for the Sustainability and Environment Committee.
