The project aims at facilitating the exchange and dissemination of existing good practices of the different countries in the region to promote safe conditions for people to walk and cycle in urban areas, and to take stock of on-going work to improve the assessment of health effects related to levels of cycling and walking and of the related costs and benefits of promoting non-motorized transport means.
