Policy issue:  Improve the cooperation between transport, environmental and spatial planning ministries


Key assessment

Formal cooperation between various ministries is a prerequisite for the development, implementation and follow-up of a joint and integrated transport and environment strategy. Cooperation with spatial planning ministries is equally important given the increased importance of demand management.

Eleven Member States are applying some identifiable form of institutional coordination (co-signing of policy papers by ministers, collaboration at senior level, job rotation). However, the degree of cooperation needs to be improved in all countries, in order to achieve sound and balanced formulation and implementation of integrated strategies.
