There is considerable knowledge of how to enhance the health of communities through reshaping their environments, particularly the urban environments in which people increasingly live. We have much less understanding of how to deliver these healthier urban environments. This paper reviews the research on four key urban health problematics – sanitation and wastewater treatment, transportation and mobility, the urban heat island impacts, and indoor air quality – and considers the implications for urban planning and management.
