Repairing Memory and Place in Monash Art, Design and Architecture is an Indigenous-led water project that was one of 67 research projects selected for funding under the Australian Research Council’s (ARC) Linkage Project scheme to keep Australia at the forefront of emerging technologies and benefit the wider community.

The interdisciplinary project, which sits within Wominjeka Djeembana Lab, will integrate Indigenous ways of knowing with urban water management. By helping to enable the repair of ecological and cultural memory of Place the project also strives to enable government agencies to apply Indigenous practices to everyday management of urban water towards a more sustainable water future.

Biodiversity indicators can be useful for a variety of different activities. However, at the global scale, they are rarely linked directly to decision making. Monash Business School researchers developed a new model for assigning biodiversity indicators based on a common approach used in economics that classifies indicators as leading, coincident, or lagging. This classification system developed by the MBS team creates an explicit link to preventative decision-making, supporting action to address ocean-based global species extinction and marine ecosystem collapse.

Southeast Asia Framework for Ocean Action in Mitigation (SEAFOAM) is a Climateworks Centre project, supported by Quantedge Advancement Initiative, to identify ocean-based solutions to help deliver greenhouse gas emission cuts pledged under the Paris Agreement.

The SEAFOAM pilot project will focus on ocean-based climate mitigation and marine nature-based climate solutions in Indonesia. As the world’s largest archipelagic country and host to 17 per cent of the world’s blue carbon ecosystems, Indonesia is one of the most important countries in the world for ocean-based climate change mitigation.

Researchers from Monash Law School were awarded funding from the Australia-India Indo-Pacific Oceans Initiative Grant to explore maritime cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region. Leveraging the researchers’ expertise in plastic pollution, the project included exploring marine ecology strategies, with a particular emphasis on marine plastic litter and debris regulatory waste minimisation models in the Bay of Bengal.
