Internalisation of external costs is high on the political agenda but hampered by the lack of quality data. Specifically the new European White Paper on Transport could lead to traffic avoidance and/or a modal shift towards more environmentally friendly modes of transport.
Quantification of external costs of inland waterway transport operations is however hampered by lack of EU-wide quality data on the operation and characteristics of inland waterway transport (e.g. characteristics of the fleet, transport volumes, actual emission levels).
