Environment and sustainability

Providing advice and support to policy makers and other stakeholders on environmental and sustainability issues and public health.

Public Health Institute has undertaken a range of projects to provide wide range of stakeholders with intelligence and evidence on the environment, sustainability and the links to public health. In the 21st Century there is an increasing focus on the environment, sustainability and the development of green infrastructure. It is apparent that tackling many of these challenges may have health co-benefits. Reviews of published literature and datasets alongside original research are conducted to explore these issues and understand how they relate to health and to the work of public health professionals and other stakeholders. Recent projects include the use of parks; the impact of climate change upon health; the economic benefits of investing in green infrastructure and the monitoring and evaluation of green projects for community and voluntary groups.
