Development of a prototype co-benefits calculator for low-carbon precinct design: final report

22 May 2019

Cities across the globe are faced with combined issues associated with large-scale population growth, transportation system change, and re-configuration of urban form in the areas of housing, transport and industry. Research has demonstrated that the design of cities directly affects population health and is also positively associated with levels of population productivity. Based on this evidence, the current project developed and trialled a prototype low-carbon precinct co-benefits calculator (LCL-CBC). The calculator was developed to be used by planners and developers across both public and private sectors with the purpose of better understanding how health and productivity co-benefits could be integrated into low-carbon urban precinct designs.
