Impact assessment

Assessing the impacts of policy alternatives is not an easy task. It requires a good understanding of various domains to be able to balance trade-offs and expose win-win situations. Metronamica helps in making informed decisions by showing the impacts of policy alternatives on a wide range of indicators. It also facilitates discussion for all groups involved in the decision-making process. Most importantly, you can do all this before large investments and irreversible changes are made.

Different types of what-if questions can be answered with Metronamica. For example:

  • What are the spatial implications of an ageing population?
  • Will compact development provide a more sustainable future than urban sprawl?
  • What is the impact of road construction on the attraction of industrial and commercial activity and what are the trade-offs for the natural environment?
  • Can a green belt around the city provide for an improved living environment for its inhabitants?
