This research project evaluates actions and examines associated policies to reduce emissions in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The project takes a standard policy evaluation approach using cost-effectiveness, emissions reduced, political acceptability, and administrative feasibility. It then considers intangible values as well as demographic and urban form interactions. Taking these interactions into account illustrates how the evaluation may change given different demographic characteristics or urban density levels. The results show that while research into these additional factors is limited, there is potential for them to inform policy evaluations in the future.
