Social Impacts of Time and Space-Based Road Pricing Roundtable
Several attempts to introduce road pricing have failed politically due to perceived equity concerns. Despite that, the social and distributional impacts on different stakeholders are still poorly assessed by practitioners.
The objectives of this Roundtable were to:
1. Understand the current state of international practices in conducting social and distributional impact analysis, specifically applied to road pricing assessment.
2. Share information on mitigation strategies to minimise the negative social and distributional impacts and maximise the effectiveness of such strategies.
3. Explore recent developments in social impact assessment and modelling methodologies used to inform the policy design, enhance transparency and identify and mitigate risks.
