The present proposal puts forward a methodology for integrating impact assessment in the field of sustainable development. The areas covered are climate change, impacts on health, buildings and eco-systems, transport, economic impacts and energy-related issues. At the heart of the approach lies the construction of a tool for policy integration incorporating hedging on a large number of objectives. To achieve its goals, the project involves definition of measurable sustainable development indicators and selection of policy instruments for affecting these indicators, development of tools representing the entire chain from instrument to indicator for the above mentioned areas, evaluation of instrument costs, development of stochastic models of the instrument-to-indicator chain and impact analysis with the aid of a policy integration tool. The results of the analysis will be used for integrated policy exploration.
