Sustainability challenges faced by subtropical cities: The place/identity agenda in achieving sustainable urbanism in the subtropics

Kennedy, Rosemary J. (2007) Sustainability challenges faced by subtropical cities: The place/identity agenda in achieving sustainable urbanism in the subtropics. In International Urban Design Conference - Waves of change - cities at crossroads, 6 - 8 September 2007, Australia, Queensland, Gold Coast.


Back in 2002, with mounting concern that growth pressures were impacting negatively on Brisbane's character and identity, the Brisbane City Council established City designed for subtropical living, as one of eight strategic themes that it saw as critical to the successful future liveability of the city. Happily this remains part of the re-worked city vision to 2026... Council partnered QUT, and subsequently the State Govenment's Office of Urban Management to fund a collaborative centre to develop a knowledge base in subtropical design, as it pertains to the culture landscapes and built fabric of Brisbane and South East Queensland.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
