An integrated approach to SDG attainment in Cities:
Urban Design, Transport, and Population Health
The launch of a new series by the Lancet:
Nearly one year has passed since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and countries are now beginning to explore the operationalization and implementation of the 2030 Agenda. SDG 3 aims to improve health and well-being for all people, at all ages, but this commitment was made at a time of growing global health challenges. City planning that reduces non-communicable diseases and road trauma, while managing rapid urbanization is part of the solution (SDG 11). 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 focusing 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.
