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: From the earliest days of the research that has now blossomed into the World Conference on Transport Research Conferences (see Section 3), urban land use and transport have been analyzed together [79], and their interactions quantified as a key process [80,81]. The dynamics of the driving forces in the DPSIR Indicator Framework for human settlements and transport is now firmly established [82]. The key mechanisms in this driving force are illustrated graphically in Figure 3 as a systems flow diagram. It is worth observing that mathematical models of demand and supply (mechanism 4) have been exhaustively refined and verified by researchers over a long period of time. One of its leading researchers – Professor Daniel McFadden, a Nobel Laureate on consumer choice behavior – gave the keynote address at the most recent World Conference on Transport Research held at the University of California Berkeley in June, 2007.
