Consultation and Impact Assessment of Strategic Documents Related to Transport Sector Go Back

Transport is a sector with significant environmental impact and the need for reducing transportation sector environmental impacts is pointed out both in European and national level development plans/documents. Transportation system planning incorporates different transport classes and various levels of planning, starting from strategic development plans, nation-wide spatial plans and county-wide spatial plans to a roadway and other transportation infrastructure technical designs. It is important to analyze the sustainability and assess the environmental impacts throughout all the planning levels.

It is Hendrikson & Kos´ goal to integrate sustainable development and environmental protection principles to strategic documents (strategies, development plans etc) and carrying out necessary analyses and impact assessments to achieve this.
