Exploiting behavioral economics in urban form to achieve further emissions reductions
Keywords:neighbourhood design, choice architecture, urban design, urban form, behavioral economics

There is indeed a body of research findings that gives us guidance on the “choice architecture” of neighbourhood design. This chapter examines the evidence and draws conclusions for the decision support tool.
