Health Impact Assessment tool
Under the lead of the WHO, a multidisciplinary group of experts has developed HEAT – a practical tool for the economic assessments of the health effects (a) from cycling and (b) from walking.
This simple, online tool is intended for a wide variety of professionals working in the field of transport, walking, cycling or the environment. It facilitates population-wide assessment, translating the effects of active mobility measures into a quantitative evidence-based, evaluation.
The PASTA project will develop this tool further looking at options to add new functions and modules to produce a new improved version for practical application in the urban context.
