As a new member of Cyburbia from the tropical city of Cairns, Australia, I am interested to know if there are any particular niches of tropical expertise within the Cyburbia community. I am currently working with James Cook University to help develop a Tropical Urban Design course as part of our Tropical Urban and Regional Planning degree, and within this, we are working on developing co-operative linkages with industry and institutions operating as tropical built environment specialists. I have also started a Planning in the Tropics Blog, just to get going.
Any feedback or suggestions on this topic are welcome.
