There is tremendous potential for digital landscape architecture to support actions within the international development sector, which operates in highly diverse and complex environments. Informal settlements, or slums, which often have limited access to basic services, are one such example. This paper presents the development of a Digital Platform within an action-research project, RISE, which aims to investigate the interlinkages of human and environmental health – planetary health, implementing a built intervention and measuring change over time. The platform prototype has been developed to simulate human and environmental contexts in the RISE project settlement sites and support informed decision-making by researchers, implementers, communities and agencies. It is anticipated that the health and environment data hosted within the platform will improve researchers’ understanding of contamination exposure pathways and inform water sensitive urban design and infrastructure implementation in the RISE informal settlements.
