A sustainable housing system for remote Indigenous communities requires six integrated elements: (i) culturally responsive design, (ii) eco-efficiency, (iii) healthy living practices, (iv) housing-related training and employment, (v) life-cycle costing of projects, and (vi) innovation in procurement, ownership and construction systems

Impact and interest:

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.

Additional Information: The contents of this report can be freely accessed online via the publisher's web page (see hypertext link).This bulletin is based on AHURI project 30354. The project is a response to the need for a culturally appropriate and locally adjustable framework of design guidelines and capacity building tools for Indigenous housing in provincial and remote Australia. Through active engagement with Indigenous Australians in three case study sites, the project will examine the way Indigenous people use their homes to meet their cultural and social requirements.
