Making sustainable development happen

My research interests are around environmental sustainability and the use of strategic planning and impact assessment to promote sustainable development. Currently I'm working on projects which attempt to connect different parts of sustainable development, either through urban greening as a multifunctional approach to dealing with urban and environmental challenges (UGUP) or which attempts to connect professionals from the health and environmental fields to enable communication, learning and professional development. Ultimately, I'm interested in how we can put sustainable development principles into action.
