Integrating Human Health into the Urban Development and Transport Planning Agenda: A Summary and Final Conclusions

Chapter

Abstract

This book has brought together people from different sectors and disciplines including urban and transport planning, environment, public health and social sciences to document how urban and transport planning and related environmental exposures affect health and what could be the solutions to create healthier cities. Although the language and terminology used at times differ substantially, the main messages that come across are that improvements in urban and transport planning are essential and possible to improve public health.
