This project aims to improve two key areas of environmental policy by investigating the meaning of environmental justice and how it is best implemented. It will generate a significant new framework of the idea of environmental justice as it is understood in Australia – including climate justice, food justice, and just transition – and offer innovative research, engagement, and policy recommendations.
The central aim of this project is to foster more just social and environmental outcomes by identifying opportunities to improve environmental justice theory and its integration into policy, particularly around both urban food and energy transition policies in Australia. Overall, the project should provide the benefit of the development of more just policies on two key environmental issues facing Australia.
