Eugene Climate and Energy Action Plan HIA

In 2010, Upstream completed a Health Impact Assessment of the land use and transportation objectives in the Eugene, OR Climate and Energy Action Plan. We found that many of the objectives would promote improved public health directly through reduced greenhouse gas emissions and indirectly through increases in physical activity, improvements in air quality, and reductions in vehicle collisions. In addition, Upstream recommended several strategies to strengthen the connection between health outcomes and the plan and to ensure that the needs of vulnerable populations would be prioritized.
