You will be introduced to government, politics and governance; the complexity of planning across three levels of government in partnership with NGOs, Business and Indigenous communities. You will consider the role of politics in planning because planners deal with the allocation of resources - a political process. It will be discussed how Planners need to understand the formal authority of governments, along with informal arrangements. Field experience on Fraser Island, a World Heritage Area, will highlight issues associated with successful spatial governance and sustainable development.
