Sustainable mobility at the EU level – and the new transport White Paper
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
The main messages of the paper in four points are the following: (1) The environmental target for 2050 (sixty percent emission decrease, oil dependence decrease) is a very progressive vision, clear target. (2) The tools to achieve these objectives are sometimes still contradictory in the White Paper. (3) There is no clear picture on the what-to-dos of the first ten years until 2020 (when probably a new White Paper will be issued); the back-casting is missing following the vision. (4) The Strategy chapter is not too much based on the 2050 vision but rather on the creation of a single European transport area. It was a relevant vision in the period of the EU-6s, ‘-9s, ‘-12s – but it is a question if it is still relevant for the EU-27s, or it is rather a myth, a dream.
