The EU has formulated ambitious environmental policy targets in a variety of sectors aimed at forming the basis for a sustainable European growth with increasing prosperity and reduced pressure on natural resources and the environment. In addition, the focus on interrelationships and tradeoffs at each policy level on different scales of observation is of crucial importance when designing efficient policy mixes that can lead Europe to more significant sustainable pathways.

In the above framework, the “APRAISE - Assessment of Policy Impacts on Sustainability in Europe” started in October 2011 and carried out under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission, can offer European and national policy makers a more holistic understanding of the interaction of different policies so that efficient policies can be formulated. The overarching motivation of APRAISE is to contribute to research on and application of sustainability-oriented policy making by building a more comprehensive understanding of the policy systems at a sectoral, national, and pan-European level.

PROJECT GOALS:

APRAISE is expected to provide policy makers with an improved understanding of:
• the efficiency, effectiveness and efficacy of existing and potentially new environmental policies,
• how these policies could interact, and
• what could be the impact of such policy interactions on achieving social, environmental and economic goals at both the European and Member State level.
The main outputs of APRAISE are as follows: • Extension of policy assessment models. • Empirical analysis of environmental policy instruments (and their mixes) employed in different relevant sectors, such as water, waste, transport, air quality. • Development of modelling scenarios to provide additional data about the macro-effects and the [...]
