Regenerative urban precincts: A framework for systemic sustainable and climate-driven urban transitions

Henrique Sala Benites is focusing on developing a framework for transitioning existing precincts into a state of regenerative sustainability based on urban metabolism, life-cycle thinking and ecosystem services.

The aim of the research, which is being supervised by Dr Paul Osmond and Scientia Professor Deo Prasad, is to advance our holistic comprehension of how systems approach can improve our cities.
With a thesis titled ‘Regenerative urban precincts: A framework for systemic sustainable and climate-driven urban transitions’, the framework will be applied in selected case studies.
