Refinement and test of sustainability indicators and tools with regard to European transport policies

Objective

The objective of the study is to provide a set of sustainability indicators for assessing the effect of various policies through state-of-art models at European scale. The challenge is to develop, test and validate a 'Smodelling tools-based' methodology that produces data on a set of indicators and that enables ex-ante evaluation of the European Common Transport Policy considering the economic, environmental and social dimensions of sustainability.

The REFIT consortium felt that the current weakness of sustainability assessments of transport policy are
- the bad linkages between transport models and sustainability indicators
- the incompleteness of existing modelling tool box and\
- the tendency to address measures in isolation while assessment of policy packages is needed in order to include cumulative and cross-over effects.
