Report: "Health as the pulse of the new urban agenda"



The following report published by WHO continues the themes of the previous post...

"New models of cooperation and cross-sector collaboration are needed to identify synergies across these sectors, and generate actions that result in overall gains to society, with health, environmental and economic co-benefits." p.19.

From the Executive summary:
How can policies and decisions at the city level expand opportunity for and protect the health of the 54% of humanity now living in cities? This document outlines some opportunities and basic strategies, while answering the following critical questions:  
1. Why is urban development important to health and vice versa?
2. What are examples of successful urban policies and strategies that deliver environmental, economic, social and health benefits?
3. How can decision-makers apply a “health lens” to urban planning, governance and finance, and avail themselves of tools to improve health, reduce social inequalities and ensure wider access to services and opportunity?
4. What role can the health sector play in advancing healthy, sustainable urban planning?
