The report makes recommendations on good practice and identifies the Danube river basin as the critical area for improvement
Physical processes in estuaries( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Physical Processes in Estuaries the present day knowledge of the physics of transport phenomena in estuaries and their mathematical treatment is summarized: It is divided into following parts: - Water movements in estuaries - Estuarine fronts and river plumes - Internal waves and interface stability - Fine sediment transport, aggregation of particles, settling velocity of mud flocs - Sedimentation and erosion of fine sediments. For each topic an up-to-date review and recommendations for future research are given, followed by results of original studies. Since estuarine environments are the first to be threatened by urbanization and industrial exploitation this book is an important tool for students and researchers of environmental problems as well as for consultants and water authorities
Airport growth and safety : executive summary of the Schiphol project( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On October 4, 1992 an El Al freight aircraft crashed into an apartment complex near Amsterdam after taking off from Schiphol airport. This disaster generated sufficient public arousal that the Netherlands government deemed it necessary to make a careful reexamination of the external risks of the airport prior to proceeding with expansion plans. RAND's European American Center was asked to do this study. A six-month survey and analysis of the safety issues performed by RAND using a multidisciplinary team of risk experts, aviation consultants, statisticians, and policy analysts. Both quantitative risk estimates and public opinions of airport risks and benefits played importantly in the analysis. Recommendations included safety management changes, safety incident tracking and better public communication. Two reports, "Airport Growth and Safety: A Study of the External Risk of Schiphol Airport and Possible Safety Enhancement Measures," and "Airport Growth and Safety, Executive Summary of the Schiphol Project," were completed under the project

FORWARD--freight options for road, water, and rail for the Dutch by R. J Hillestad( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a major transportation research study that examined the benefits and costs of a broad range of policy options for mitigating negative impacts of the expected growth in Dutch road freight transport while retaining economic benefits. The study's key findings were: the most cost-effective policy options ("tactics") are those that improve road freight transport efficiency, tactics that mitigate transport problems at their source are sometimes cost-effective and complement the transport efficiency improvements, tactics based on shifting freight from road to other transport modes are not cost-effective if the other modes' service characteristics are not improved, the promising tactics' effects on the economy are usually small. The methodology employed was a structured policy-analysis approach developed to handle situations involving complex systems and competing interest groups. Impacts of the various policy options were estimated using a model (PACE-FORWARD) also useful for reevaluating policy options as projections change and/or more data become available. Existing Dutch and international research, data, and models were used extensively, as was input from policymakers and other stakeholders
POLSSS : policy for sea shipping safety : executive summary( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Safety concerns in shipping in and around the Netherland's harbors and ports range from the risks and environmental impacts of shipping disasters to the economic effects of more common accidents. Safety is also an important precondition for further developing Rotterdam's mainport function. The Netherlands Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management asked RAND Europe to develop an analytical framework to identify promising sea shipping safety policies. The study, POLicy for Sea Shipping Safety (POLSSS) included an assessment of the costs and benefits of a range of policy options for maintaining or improving safety in the North Sea, a survey of the perceptions of stakeholders about the safety situation in the North Sea, and a survey of the perceptions of stakeholders about the cost-effectiveness of some of the policy options. This report provides an overview of the project and its results. More detailed information is contained in three supporting volumes, which are available from RAND Europe
A monitoring system for the effects of activities of Transport Inspectorate Netherlands on traffic safety : final report by Han van der Loop( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project, performed for the Traffic Inspectorate Netherlands (TIN), investigates the possibilities of implementing instruments developed in the United States, especially SafeStat (see below), to monitor the effects of the activities carried out by the Transport and Water Management Inspectorate, (in Dutch "Inspectie Verkeer en Waterstaat (IVW)"), and Transport Inspectorate Netherlands (TIN, "Divisie Vervoer"), to increase road traffic safety. SafeStat is a set of rules, integrated in a software tool, which prioritizes U.S. motor carriers for safety inspections. Other instruments have been developed in the US for selecting vehicles for roadside inspections and for evaluating the effectiveness of road transport safety policy. The Dutch Ministry of Transport would like to develop a similar instrument for prioritizing carriers for inspection in the Netherlands, but also for assessing the effectiveness of the inspection activities (roadside inspections and on-site compliance reviews) carried out by TIN. The report contains a comparison of road safety aspects in the United States and The Netherlands and a description of the American tools and proposals for the development of similar tools in The Netherlands

Risicoanalyse van het Zero-Base Project : eindrapport by Erik Frinking( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in Dutch and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The zero-base project contains a large number of activities with respect to the planning and implementation of radio frequencies for FM and AM radio stations in the Netherlands. Starting point is a complete revision of all available frequencies for public and commercial radio stations. The objective is to improve the efficiency and quality of broadcasting and providing more radio stations with opportunities to broadcast. Within in Europe, this is considered a unique operation. All of the activities were supposed to be completed by 1 September 2001. However, this planning had to be adjusted. The Ministry asked RAND Europe to identify critical elements regarding costs, quality, and timing of the outcome of the zero base project and develop a risk management plan for those elements that could pose a threat to a desirable outcome. This risk analysis took several dimensions of the problem into account, among which international arrangements, auction characteristics, technical implementation aspects, and overall performance in the context of media policy."--Rand abstracts

PACE-FORWARD : policy analytic and computational environment for Dutch freight transport by M. J Carrillo( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the design and capabilities of PACE-FORWARD, the decision support system (DSS) developed to support the FORWARD (Freight Options for Road, Water, and Rail for the Dutch) study, a major transportation research study that examined the benefits and costs of a broad range of policy options for mitigating the negative impacts of the expected growth in Dutch road freight transport while retaining the economic benefits. The PACE-FORWARD DSS was used to estimate the effects of numerous policy options and can be used to reevaluate policy options as projections change and/or more data become available. The model offers a spreadsheet environment containing tools and models to support policy analysis, including macroeconomic effects. It has integrated data and model bases and a graphical user interface. Existing Dutch and international research, data, and models were used extensively in its design and development

An inventory of transport safety information in the Netherlands by J. A Stoop( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report gives an inventory of transport safety information available in the Netherlands at the end of 1995. The inventory reflects the registration and recording of transport accidents and incidents in air, rail, road, inland waterway, and maritime transport. It is set forth by the organization processing the information and by database. In compiling the inventory, the authors became aware of the need to distinguish between investigation and research and to use both in synthesis, the need to detect causal patterns in accidents, the problem of incomplete denominators in analyses of risk, biases that may result when information collected for one purpose is used for another, and the limitations of looking at one type of accident at a time
A demonstration policy evaluation of the Dutch Second Transport Structure Plan (SVV) by Warren E Walker( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a methodology for performing a policy evaluation of the traffic and transport policy of the Netherlands, and demonstrates the methodology in one policy area--personal mobility. In addition to a description of the methodology, the report presents some conclusions about the transport policy and its implementation, recommendations about the next steps in the policy evaluation process, and results from the demonstration. In particular, the demonstration revealed that much essential data for policy evaluation are not available or are difficult to obtain. The report recommends creating a data collection system, improving the quality of data in analysis files, and hiring an applied statistician for the Ministry to use the methodology and interpret the results
