Research Title: The Cleaner, Greener, Leaner study: Walkability in the Greater Dublin Area

The way we plan and design our communities and transport systems matters for human health, sustainable transport behaviour and the natural environment. This study will examine to what extent community and transportation planning (or urban form) impacts individual level health, transport behaviour, and the production of air pollution and greenhouse emissions. The end goal is to provide evidence and measures that can better inform the planning process in Ireland and to suggest sustainable models by determining the extent to which planning effects the environment and human well-being.

Funding: Environmental Protection Agency's STRIVE programme
