L'évaluation des effets externes du transport sur l'environnement

Abstract : The use of energy in the transport sector is the cause of many pollutions. The resulting environmental effects are various and often complex. However it seems possible for some effects to quantify the relationship between an increase in the pollutant concentration in the environment and the effect induced on receptors. The paper give examples of such exposure-response functions relating to impacts on the built environment, atmospheric visibility, vegetation, human health. The monetary value of these impacts can be estimated as an economic cost or by contingent valuation method. Evaluation of the external costs associated with the transport energy use raises methodological questions and involves large uncertainties. Such studies could nevertheless enlighten decisionmakers on the magnitude of some external effects. They are in any case interesting by the underlying system analysis
