It provides us with the results of the study “Potential of Cycling to reduce Emissions in Road Transport” conducted by the Dresden University of Technology  at the request of the Federal Ministry of the Environment of Germany.

WHO Regional Office for Europe carried out a baseline assessment of the magnitude of environmental health inequality in the European Region based on a set of 14 inequality indicators.

This document contains an action plan for implementation of the European Strategy for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases.

Report presents evidence on role of transport in increasing levels of physical activity, and addresses health problems caused by low levels of such. It examines evidence on links between transport and physical activity, especially use of car.

The report takes stock of progress made by the country in managing its environment since 2003 (i.e. policymaking, planning&implementation, financing of environmental policy&projects, & integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors.

The report shows that life expectancy and monetary benefits increase significantly when levels of fine particles are reduced further in European cities. Living near busy roads substantially increases the burden of disease attributable to air pollution.

Within the framework of the Commission’s multi-year programme of work, transport was discussed by the Commission at its ninth session, in 2001.
