Research output: Book/ReportOther report


Urban design influences where air pollution is produced, how it disperses through streets and neighbourhoods, and where, when, and how much people are exposed. This guide explains how good urban design can improve air quality using simple principles that benefit air quality and providing practical guidance and illustrations outlining how to implement them in urban areas.
