Physical activity promotion requires a whole-of-government approach, not simply efforts of the health sectors. This chapter first provides a brief overview of non-communicable disease trends and the importance of physical activity in reducing the risks of these diseases.

The extent to which policy can be used to increase access to public open space is then discussed before some concluding comments about the important role played by planners, urban designers, and landscape architects in creating active living friendly environments, and researchers in addressing policy-relevant research priorities that could help move the agenda forward.",
