Melbourne City Council
Located on the southeastern coast of Australia, Melbourne is Victoria´s capital city and Australia's 2nd most populous city. It is often referred to as Australia's cultural capital, and is also an important national financial and industrial center. Melbourne has been facing a drought in recent years and faces severe water problems, as well as retaining a very high carbon emission profile. Its plan to become an "Eco-City" by the year 2020 has already started to address these issues by encouraging building retrofitting and implementing a sustainable water management program.
