Policy issue: Monitor - by using indicators - the progress and effectiveness of national transport strategies
Most countries report transport and environment indicators, mostly under general state of the environment reports or sustainability reports. Regular transport and environment indicators are prepared in six countries. Only Austria and Finland have as yet set up indicator reporting mechanisms along the lines of TERM (the Austrian system mainly addressing environmental indicators). Sweden, France and part of Germany (Baden Württemberg), are planning to do so. In the Netherlands, transport-environment monitoring is also part of the yearly 'environmental balance sheet' and 'biodiversity balance sheet', which are the responsibility of legally independent bodies that have the sole task of policy performance monitoring and reporting to support the political process.
