Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
Issues to consider include: population-level health outcomes such as pollution emissions and exposure, the impact of an intervention on risk and danger and other, wider outcomes of interest such as the impact on the local economy. Approaches should be developed to take account of the backgrounds and needs of the different professional groups involved in helping to influence walking and cycling for transport or recreation. This includes professionals working in public health, transport, environment, economic development and regeneration.
