H2. Decarbonising cities and regions

Reducing the carbon footprint of human settlements is a major consideration in land development and planning. This session calls for papers that explore models and approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with urban subdivisions, new urban developments, urban redevelopments, regional towns, mining camps, Indigenous settlements as well as innovative carbon free urban developments. Issues covered can include planning and design, construction of buildings, provision of water, energy, transport, infrastructure, waste and CO2 sequestration.
