ABSTRACT
Urbanization and transport have a direct effect on public health. A transdisciplinary approach is proposed and illustrated to tackle the general problem of these environmental stressors and public health. Processes driving urban development and environmental stressors are identified. Urbanization, transport and public health literature is reviewed and environmental stressors are classified into their impacts and which group is affected, the geographical scale and potential inventions. Climate change and health impacts are identified as a research theme. From an Australian perspective, further areas for research are identified.

Mentions: That there were so few papers relating to urbanization, transport and environmental and health impacts was somewhat surprising given the Society’s earlier initiative with a multi-disciplinary, multicountry study of transport and the environment, with the Editors achieving after much debate and argument a common conceptual understanding. Figure 1 illustrates a similar diagrammatic representation of goals, strategies and policy instruments for integrated land use and transport solutions to environmental problems in Japanese cities [24]. The World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS) and the Institute of Transport Policy Studies, Tokyo used a similar conceptual model to guide research collaboration on urban transport and the environment [38].
