Assessing How Transport and Urban Planning Impact Our Health


Did you know that by improving access to green spaces, according to the WHO recommendations, 43,000 deaths could be avoided every year? We know it thanks to the #ISGlobalRanking. It is an ongoing project aimed at estimating the health impacts of urban and transport planning in 1,000 European cities.

One of the researchers involved in the study, Evelise Pereira Barboza, presented it at #OpenPRBB Week and stressed the importance of improving the urban and the transport planning.
