Framework for Evaluation of the 2003 Air Transport White Paper

01 November 2007
By Michael Spackman et al.

In this report for the UK Department for Transport (DfT), a NERA team provides a framework for the implementation of the DfT's commitments to evaluate the 2003 Air Transport White Paper (ATWP) and its associated policies. The authors examine the policy issues, policy instruments, and objectives of the ATWP, the purposes for which evaluations are needed, and how each might best be approached. They also consider the management of the evaluation program and how the proposed evaluations should be disseminated. The NERA report is intended primarily for those who will be commissioning the evaluations but will also be of interest to prospective future evaluators and to the aviation industry and other stakeholders with aviation policy interests.
