Impact Assessment (IA) of planned policies is increasingly perceived and used as a tool to consider the concerns of Sustainable Development from early on in decision making. For such assessments, a wide range of evidence from many different disciplines is needed: For example, agricultural policies impact on soil, water, climate, employment, economy, third countries, etc.
Our main objective is to build up a broad interdisciplinary community of researchers and practitioners which develops a mutual understanding of the respective needs and potentials.
This website is an important tool for information exchange within the LIAISE project and for linking-up with external parties involved in Impact Assessment. We provide daily news on different issue areas relevant for Impact Assessment and Sustainable Development. We also publish a regular News Bulletin to which you may subscribe.
You are strongly invited to use this LIAISE website for the dissemination of your research projects and other IA related activities. We also look forward to your feedback on this website and your views on joining the process towards an IA community.
