Type of initiative
Policy Frameworks & Tools
The project will support a shift to more sustainable modes of consumption and production by supporting built environments and urban settlements which are more energy and water efficient, produce less waste and pollution, use local resources and skills, support the local economy, education and health and encourage users to develop living and working patterns that are more sustainable.
Bylaws have been developed and piloted. These will be refined in discussing with local councils and through public participation processes.
Impact and Results
This initiative has significant potential to improve environmental, social and economic sustainability performance of built environments, neighbourhoods and urban areas. This has been confirmed by previous projects and will be monitored and evaluated in this project as far as possible.
Next steps and how to get involved
We would be interested in partners such as municipalities, developers and community organisations wishing to develop, or refine sustainable building policy, legislation, bylaws, tools and guidelines, as well as projects.
