MEMBER CONNECT: Urban Green Infrastructure Handbook

MEMBER CONNECT: Urban Green Infrastructure Handbook

Join us for this monthly series as we give our AILA Members an opportunity to connect on a topical issue.  This month's session will be hosted by the AILA Advocacy Committee and will focus on the Urban Green Infrastructure Handbook released by Standards Australia earlier this year. AILA, along with a team of subject matter experts led the development of the critical 'Urban Green Infrastructure - Planning and decision framework'.  This handbook meets the urgent demand for a nationally consistent UGI framework.

The session will cover:

  • Introduction to the handbook
  • Purpose and process of creation
  • Nationally consistent definitions
  • Planning framework
  • Decision framework for different project types
  • What's next

Join Ben Stockwin, AILA CEO and Stephen Livesley, University of Melbourne for this session, followed by a Q&A session to ask your questions.

Professor Stephen Livesley, The University of Melbourne

Stephen focusses his research on quantifying and modelling the ecosystem services and biodiversity benefits provided by urban forests. Stephen leads urban forest research at The University of Melbourne, Australia as part of the Green Infrastructure Research Group. He is one of the world’s eminent urban forest researchers, having published extensively and fostering international collaborations. He works closely with local governments and industry within Australia to ensure his research is applied and has impact for society and environmental benefit. Stephen believes that a scientific evidence-base is essential for the role of urban forests to be front and centre of future urban planning and climate change adaptation actions.
