Impact areas

This section of the Toolbox provides a comprehensive overview on possible types of economic, environmental and social impacts. These Impact Areas allow the user to frame the likely effects deriving from the policy measures under consideration. The description of the impact areas includes the current state of affairs, drivers of change, policies, indicators, and other sources for information. This should facilitate the scoping and problem framing in an IA. On this basis, other types of knowledge, models, publications, previous IA, and experts can be identified.
