Peri-Urban Agriculture: The Future of the Fringe (Webinar)

Presented by Sustain

Join Michael Buxton (RMIT), Andrew Butt (RMIT) and Nick Rose (Sustain) to discuss the pressures on Australian peri-urban areas - practice, protection, policy and development.

The urban fringe holds 50% of Australia's biodiversity and most urban water source, but land use decisions are jeopardising critical natural resources. What can we do to protect farming in the food bowl as demand for subdivisions and dwellings grows and climate change continues to take its toll?
