Urban Livability in Australia


Designing healthy livable cities is a global priority. In Australia, urban livability has been increasingly recognized in state and federal urban planning policies as an important determinant of population health and well-being. This presentation will report on the work undertaken through the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy Livable Communities to develop a policy relevant definition of liveability; a suite of measurable indicators across the domains of transport, social infrastructure, employment, walkability, housing, green infrastructure and ambient environment; and a high resolution, composite measure of local neighborhood urban livability, scalable to the national level, as a support tool for policy makers and planners.
