Uitwerking luchtvaartcomponent in de Questascenario's [Development of the aviation component of the Questa scenarios]

by Odette van de Riet, Robbin te Velde, Barbara van de Kerke

QUESTA is a scenario-development project that was carried out by a team within the Netherlands' Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management. The aim of the project was to develop descriptions of possible future developments inside and outside the Dutch traffic and transport system. RAND Europe assisted the project team by providing advice and support in different phases of the project on an as-needed basis. This report describes the extension of the scenarios developed in the project to the field of civil aviation -- using the existing scenarios as the contextual structure. Civil aviation had originally been excluded by the Ministry from the scenario development effort.
