Policy issue: Differentiate transport taxes and charges on the basis of marginal external costs
Most countries are establishing internalisation instruments, but implementation is still facing barriers
Internalisation measures are currently mostly concentrated on air pollution in the road sector and noise in the aviation sector. Almost no measures have yet been taken to internalise costs of congestion (some aviation and rail charges, and some urban parking fees are exceptions). In most urban areas, internalisation of external costs is still very incomplete.
