From 2006 to 2008
The objective of the study is to provide a set of sustainability indicators for assessing the effect of various policies/packages of priority interest through state-of-art models at European scale. The challenge is therefore to develop, test and validate a "modelling tools-based"; methodology that produces data on a set of identified indicators and that enables ex-ante evaluation of the European Common Transport Policy considering the economic, environmental and social dimensions of sustainability.

TML was responsible for the development of both sustainability indicators and a modelling tool for the assessment of equity and income distribution effects of the European Common Transport Policy. The modelling tool, called EDIP, was built using the Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) framework for each of the EU27 countries + Norway, Switzerland, Croatia and Turkey. The EDIP model has the same structure for all the represented countries and incorporates the representation of different socio-economic groups, their income earning capacities on the labour market and their transport-related choices. It also models explicitly production activities, countries + exports and imports and their governmental budgets.
