This discussion paper raises issues about the challenges of increasing urbanisation and climate change, and seeks to present a more strategic approach to settlement planning in Australia for climate change. It focuses on cities and explores the issues and the barriers to change. The impacts of urbanisation and climate change bring with them opportunities to rethink how we can manage future urban growth.
