This event will showcase new approaches to integrated policy design to tackle the challenges lain out in the SDGs. Specifically, the event will launch a new Lancet series focuses on the health impact of city planning through transport mode options and choices. The three papers showcased in the series will unravel the complexity of urban design, the transport system and population health, and call for a paradigm shift in our approach to responding to the growing burden of chronic disease and injury in our cities. The series offers key recommendations that urban and transport planners and policymakers could implement to improve the health of urban populations, thereby addressing underlying drivers of SDGs 3 and 11.
