Abstract

Achieving sustainable urban development for a projected global population of 9.2 billion in 2050, 70 per cent of whom will be living in urban settings (United Nations 2008), represents one of the principal challenges of the twenty-first century. Australia, as one of the world's most urbanized societies, led this global transition 125 years ago. Its cities are classed among the world's most liveable. Liveability, however, does not equate to sustainability. Indeed the current trajectory of Australia's urban development has been classed as unsustainable (Newton 2006, 2007a).

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare 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.
