Scoping current challenges and best-practice examples of cities’ biodiversity strategies

Dr Amy Hahs is collaborating on a new project to scope current challenges and best-practice examples related to the effective delivery of biodiverse and multi-functional green spaces in cities. Amy will investigate and develop actions toward redressing the unequal distribution of urban green spaces in some of Australia’s most populous cities, and how this may be resulting in lower-income communities having less access to the ecosystem and health benefits. Dr Judy Bush, Dr Jinlong Liu and Dr Suzanne Mavoa are co-investigators on the Future Cities Seed Project supported by the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute. See the project website
