Home Projects Summary
National Urban Indicators
The primary aim is to determine whether or not Australian cities have become more polarized socially in the last decade, and how this compares with developments in kindred societies.
  • The development of a set of small-area indicators and/or benchmarks for Australian urban communities that will measure variations through time in education, lab our market participation, occupations and income, health and safety, housing conditions, community resources, and environmental (dis)amenity and will take into account gender, age, class and cultural dimensions.
  • The Construction of a GIS platform to be used as a tool for urban management.
  • To reach a soundly grounded position on the nature and extent of social polarization and locational disadvantage within Australian cities.
Scope and Objectives
This project will develop a GIS to assess the spatial impact of structural adjustment and changing governmental regulations upon communities in Australian cities and regional centres during the 1980s. It is proposed to project the analysis to the year 2001 to coincide not only with a Census but the advance towards republicanism and what this means for citizenship in Australia. The research plan can be summarized in four stages:
  • The selection of spatial units and urban indicators
  • Development of a GIS
  • The use of standard approaches to depict spatial changes using descriptive statistics. Other standard multivariate statistics will be used to classify and compare these urban "communities"

    Sustainable Cities: A perspective from the Australian State of the Environment Report
    by Peter Newman, Associate Professor in City Policy, Director, Institute for Sustainability and Technology Policy , Murdoch University, Western Australia.
    This paper will relate the concept of sustainability as defined by global politics to cities. It will use an innovative approach recently developed as part of a major report to the Australian government - the Australian State of the Environment Report, 1996.
    Sustainability And Global Politics
    Academic definitions of sustainable development, or sustainability for short, are never very satisfying as the concept has not come from there. It has come from a global political process that has tried to bring together, simultaneously, the most powerful needs of our time:
    • the need for economic development to overcome poverty,
    • the need for environmental protection of air, water, soil and biodiversity upon which we all ultimately depend, and
    • the need for cultural diversity and processes to allow local communities to express their values.
