Making Greater Adelaide Greener

The Green Adelaide Board was formally established through the Landscape South Australia Act 2019, as a new body to drive innovative and collaborative environmental management across metropolitan Adelaide.

This presentation will focus on the key drivers behind the creation of this body, the key priorities and actions for the inaugural year, the development of a 5-year regional plan and paying attention in particular to how urban greening, WSUD and BSUD will be incorporated as major areas of focus.
