The aim of this project is to develop and trial a prototype low-carbon precinct co-benefits calculator for use by urban planners and designers. The calculator will estimate co-benefits associated with a range of alternative precinct designs and transport/land use configurations across health, productivity, and pollution associated with greenhouse gases and particulate emissions.

The calculator will estimate population health status (with respect to chronic disease and injury) and productivity at a precinct (or greater) level. It will enable government regulators, developers, precinct planners, designers and local government officials to estimate the population health and productivity effects of various precinct design scenarios.
