Case-Specific Policy Analysis, Policy Insights,
30 May 2017
- The process should start with an assessment of need for new infrastructure
- Comparable assessments should be undertaken for a range of feasible options
- Selection criteria need to examine all positive and negative impacts of airport capacity expansion
- Assessments need to incorporate considerations of risk and uncertainty
- The process needs to be clear, transparent, collaborative, and trade-offs need to be explicitly considered
