“The planning process for precinct structure plans has incorporated consideration of future needs for sustainable infrastructure. This has been considered against the environmental targets (or Eco City Goals) set for the city in the Future Mel- bourne community plan. To date, the Southbank Structure Plan has been completed and structure plans for other precincts are being completed.”

Cities are incorporating GHG reduction into master planning for long-term results 25 cities separately provide data on projected population growth by 2025, and the majority of responding cities report an expected positive increase. The cities of Dhaka, Lagos, Jakarta and Caracas are rapidly expanding with each projecting growth of over 2 million inhabitants by 2025. Integrating master planning with a strategy for low carbon growth can help cities to manage interconnected social, environmental and economic challenges in order to shape their long-term future.

emissions reduction into master planning. 69 percent (29) of disclosing cities are incorporating GHG reductions into master planning.


The data also shows that this trend is not simply a developed-world phenomenon. 100 percent (3) of disclosing African cities incorporate GHG reduction measures into master planning. Mega cities of Asia and Latin America report strong efforts to incorporate GHG reduction into planning. Like Melbourne, many C40 cities are beginning to consider climate resilience in their urban planning processes – a trend which we could see rise as cities gain more awareness about the risks from climate change.
