Greening the West

City West Water (Vic) | Consulting

A collaborative initiative facilitated by City West Water, ‘Greening the West’ is an important large scale urban greening venture. The project is designed to contribute to positive health outcomes, a cooler climate and a clean environment for Melbourne’s west. This will be done by increasing trees and vegetation throughout the Western suburbs. WCG’s role was to review the evidence base for the role of urban greening in addressing these issues, then identify relevant barriers and opportunities.
