Impacts of Internalisation of External Costs of Transport in Saxony (2004-2005)
The objective of the project "Impacts of Internalisation of External Costs of Transport in Saxony" was to explore possibilities to reduce the environmental impacts of transport in Saxony by prinicng as well as supporting other policies and to assess their effects. S&W was to forecast the economic impacts of two policies, a CO2 surcharge on fuel prices and a cordon charge for the major cities of Dresden, Leipzig und Chemnitz, on the regions in Saxony, compared to one another and to the regions in the rest of Germany with the SASI model. The project was a co-operation with the Chair of Transport Ecology of the Technical University of Dresden and RRG Spatial Planning and Geoinformation, Oldenburg i.H., Germany. The Final Report by S&W and the Final Report of the total project (both in German) are available for download.
