This webinar by Mark Nieuwenhuijsen, coordinator of UBDPolicy, gave an introduction to this European project led by ISGlobal (Barcelona). UBDPolicy aims to improve the estimation of health impacts and socio-economic costs and/or benefits of environmental stressors, advance methodological approaches and foster their acceptance as common good practice for urban areas, to help strengthen evidence-based policy making at city, national and EU level.
The project focuses on nearly 1,000 cities and environmental stressors including air pollution, noise, temperature/heat and lack of green space. UBD Policy will also include physical activity as a main determinant of health and examine the effects of gender and inequality in the impact estimations.
