Health economic assessment tools (HEAT) for walking and for cycling

The promotion of cycling and walking for everyday physical activity not only promotes health but can also have positive effects on the environment.

This booklet summarises the tools and guidance developed to facilitate this shift: the methodology for the economic assessment of transport infrastructure and policies in relation to the health effects of walking and cycling; systematic reviews of the economic and health literature; and guidance on applying the health economic assessment tools and the principles underlying it.
