Abstract

Primary objective: Assess the effects of interventions targeting increased use of the built environment for overall PA in both adults and children.

Describe other health benefits (e.g. mental health, risk factors for cardiovascular and other diseases) where outcomes are available.
Explore whether the effects of interventions differ between adults and children and between advantaged and disadvantaged populations.
Identify gaps in the evidence and highlight future research needs in the area.
