Landscape Architects Lead the Design of Climate Actions in the Pacific
Landscape architects are part of a multi-disciplinary team working on a large-scale project funded by the UNFCCC Adaptation Fund and administered by UN-Habitat.

The scientific team for the 'Climate Resilient Honiara' project, led by Professor Darryn McEvoy, involves RMIT teaching and research staff from six different disciplines.

The project team is currently providing scientific support and capacity building for actions to be implemented in 2020.
