TranSust: The Policy Scenarios of Converting to Sustainable Economic Structures

Modelling the influences of introducing sustainable development policies on the economy of selected European countries.

The project aims to define different development scenarios (national policies, programmes etc.) and their significance for the European Strategy for Sustainable Development.
As a first step models and research methods were improved in accordance with Extended Impact Assessment principles. It was necessary to communicate with all the key partners at national levels. Performing of an analysis of the present and future development of policies and trends in the field of sustainable development was the next important step, which was followed by creation of a hypothesis sensitivity model.
Finally, recommendations for policy-making were formulated.
