IA Report: Communication on a strategy for the internalisation of external costs

Type of practice:

The ASTRA (http://www.astra-model.eu/), the TREMOVE (http://www.tremove.org/) and the TRANSTOOLS model (http://energy.jrc.ec.europa.eu/transtools/contact.html) are used for the purpose of an impact assessment on the internalisation of external costs of noise, air pollution, climate change, congestion and accidents from heavy goods vehicles and other transport means through pricing instruments such as charges, taxes or tradable permits. The corresponding IA report http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=SEC:2008:2208:FIN:... gives an account of these applications.
