Good Places, Better Health: A New approach to the Environment and Health in Scotland: Implementation Plan



This project will help deliver effective environmental policy which will positively impact on health. The success of this project will be measured in terms of how it influences policy at a national and local level and by identifying where the outputs of this project have resulted in new, improved or adjusted policy approaches. We will also track how this influence on policy delivers on national outcomes.

The main stages of implementation are detailed below:

main stages of implementation

We will specifically track the outputs to demonstrate their impact on four specific national outcomes - our children have the best start in life, we have tackled significant inequalities in Scottish society, we live longer, healthier lives, and that we live in well-designed sustainable places. In this way we will create a chain (policy intervention - output - outcome) which can measure the impact of the initiative in terms of life changing outcomes for individuals.
