The principal aim of the study is to produce a survey of how European Union (EU) Member States have integrated, or are planning to integrate, environmental considerations in their national transport policies. The report focuses on the strengths and weaknesses of approaches in the formulation of strategies, of the selection and function of integration objectives, and of the mechanisms and institutional set-ups which are contributing to the implementation of integration. The study is intended to contribute to the Swedish Euro-EST project and to the integration process at the EU-level with information on what lessons can be learned from experience to date, and how to progress further on integration.
This project comes at a time when policy makers and practitioners in the field of transport and the environment are increasingly looking to exchange information on different experience and ways of meeting the challenge of
environmental integration in the transport sector.
