By 2050, Melbourne will need to be a more sustainable and resilient city that manages its land, biodiversity, water, energy and waste resources in a much more integrated way.
To respond to the challenges of climate change and ensure Melbourne becomes more sustainable as it grows, a green economy needs to emerge - built around renewable energy, environmentally sustainable development and resource recovery.
Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 will help protect and conserve our natural assets, support environmentally sustainable development and contribute to Victoria achieving its target of net zero greenhouse emissions by 2050.
Melbourne's natural environment is deeply valued and enjoyed by many people for recreation, cultural and spiritual reasons, and for the health and wellbeing benefits that come from being connected to nature. Greening Melbourne's neighbourhoods will enhance beauty and amenity and provide more places where people can meet, exercise and relax. Waterways, parkland and green wedges will be protected and improved to ensure all Melburnians enjoy a healthy environment.
