SALURBAL: Evidence for Action

SALURBAL recognizes that to create policy change, it's essential to disseminate research beyond academic journals and conferences. Our team works to ensure that project findings are relevant and accessible to non-researchers.

SALURBAL works with policy stakeholders and the media to disseminate our research widely so that it can be used to create change. The project also produces and disseminates a variety of materials to make its findings accessible to a wide range of audiences.


The project holds periodic in-person events to disseminate its research and findings, and to engage local partners in dialogue around policy issues. These events focus on issues such as transportation policies, food policies, and housing interventions in cities.

SALURBAL held a “Knowledge-to-Policy Forum” in November 2018 in Mexico City. The event engaged more than 20 regional and international policy stakeholders in discussion around their knowledge needs and how SALURBAL could support the creation of healthier cities in the region. Read more.
