Inspire Policy Making by Territorial Evidence
  • TIPTAP - Territorial Impact Package for Transport and Agricultural Policies

    Territorial impact assessment of policies.

    Thematic scope
    The Territorial Agenda of the EU highlights the increasing territorial influence of Community policies and states that this should be taken into consideration by policy makers. The Green Paper on Territorial Cohesion states that coordination between sectoral and territorial policies is important to maximise synergies and to avoid possible conflicts.
    This project builds on the earlier achievements of the ESPON 2006 Programme. The methodology, indicators and the prototype “TEQUILA” model will be further developed and made operational to receive a tool for the ex-ante assessment of territorial impacts of policies. The tool will be tested on transport and agricultural policy and deliver evidence on the territorial impact of these policies. The results are of direct use for creating better policy coordination.
