Introduction: The world’s urban population reached 50% of the total population for the first time in 2009. Urban population is expected to be 70% by 2050, at which point 6.3 billion people will be living in cities (United Nations, 2010). In Australia, the total population is expected to rise 60% by 2050, reaching 35 million people. Such rapid growth in urban communities has led to many negative outcomes across the world including environmental degradation, climate change, poverty and inequity. According to UN-Habitat (2011), it is expected that 3 billion people will live in slums by 2050 if our existing unsustainable urbanization practices continue to prevail.
