Monash Art, Design and Architecture hosts GBPN’s Asia Pacific office and implements research projects across the region. The Monash and GBPN partnership aims to increase the ambition, adoption and effective implementation of building energy codes and complementary policies in high mitigation potential markets in India and Southeast Asia.
Monash researchers are undertaking a series of action-research projects that help define locally specific research problems and methodologies. Through a series of research co-design and stakeholder engagement activities, each local project’s methods for data collection and analysis are contextualised. This innovative and adaptive approach is integral to the success of the research project and its impact. Projects with local expert partners iterate from research findings to identify how best to implement building energy policies in India and Indonesia, as well as other economies in Southeast Asia.
