For the AG4 implementation initiative on modal shift, the AG4 commissioned a stakeholder analysis in the second half of 2021 to identify and show the relationship between the key actors in freight transport. Building on the results of the analysis, AG4 will organise dialogue events in different parts of the Alpine Region to gather those actors and identify concrete solutions. The events will form valuable input to draw policy recommendations for a coherent modal shift policy. Those recommendations will be included in an EUSALP Policy Brief in June 2022, which is a key output of AlpGov2.
The stakeholder analysis was conducted by the LINKS Foundation with the aim to identify stakeholders and their interests to provide input to dialogue events. The expected outcomes of these events are actionable policy recommendations for effective implementation of modal shift measures organized in seven cluster topics:
The study consists of 3 Working Steps. In Working Step 1 the methodological approach was defined. In Working Step 2 the stakeholder analysis was carried out by using the Basic stakeholder Analysis Technique (BAT) and the Net-Map method. In Working Step 3 a concept for stakeholder dialogue events was created. The aim of this activity is to reach the implementation level. Therefore, the identified stakeholders shall participate in regional dialogue events along the seven cluster topics, organised in different alpine regions and/or along the corridors.
