1 Wiktor Szydarowski, PhD Freelance consultant Interreg Forum 4 Stockholm, 23 October 2013 How to make the transport greener by means of Interreg programmes? Blueprints and the sustainable multimodal transport system

2 The understanding of ‘blueprint’ © Wiktor Szydarowski Source: A blueprint is a ‘reproduction of a technical drawing, documenting an architecture or an engineering design, using a contact print process on light-sensitive sheets ‘(Wikipedia) A blueprint is a ‘something intended as a guide for making something else‘(http://www.elook.org) BUT: in a common language: SYNONYMS: ‘design’ – ‘pattern’

3 A long ‘print process’ in the Baltic Sea Region © Wiktor Szydarowski → → A snapshot of macro cooperation networks

4 …towards a pattern of transport greening ideas… © Wiktor Szydarowski Form: voluntary cooperation Purpose: streamlined project-based contribution to strategic transport planning in the BSR Strong in unity: –meeting place to jointly work on green transport solutions –joint events/dissemination of outcomes to the shared target audience –harmonised strategic documents (action plans, manuals, guidance reports etc.) –joint standpoints on EU transport policies Source:

5 Two follow-up initiatives © Wiktor Szydarowski

6 A shared ambition- can we see it in 2030? © Wiktor Szydarowski VISION: the Baltic Sea Region - a gateway for transcontinental flows and sustainable growth area Multimodal transport system instrumental (EU and neighbours) Robust and resilient system: able to interconnect national networks and absorb future changes in routes, commodities and volumes Competitive relations with other macroregions in conveying East-West trade A SUSTAINABLE MULTIMODAL TRANSPORT SYSTEM IN THE BALTIC SEA REGION

7 …and a path to achieve it © Wiktor Szydarowski THE GREEN SCENARIO AS ONE OF POSSIBLE TRAJECTORIES TILL 2030 Success of transport greening policies Internalised transport costs and improved complementarity of the transport modes (co-modality) Balanced and positive economic growth; better territorial cohesion Diminishing disparities between the western and the eastern parts as well as between metropoles and the countryside Flourishing trade with the EU neighbours and the Far East Urban centres and transport hubs located on international routes to benefit from developments Network of green and efficient corridors

8 Significant policy and trend drivers…(1) © Wiktor Szydarowski TEN-T CORE NETWORK CORRIDORS Components of the BSR network of multimodal, green and efficient transport corridors Territorial cohesion drivers in the E-BSR Boosters of interconnectivity and multimodality Agents for more competitive production and better mobility in E-BSR Means to help break the truck-dependent freight models Test bed for White Paper on Transport (modal shift till 2030/2050) Stimulators of regional growth (hubs, corridor governance)

9 Two concepts combined © Wiktor Szydarowski Top-down approach, arbitrary designation Strong role of ECOM and national authorities Interconnected large cities and markets Each EU Member States to take part in min 1 core network corridor TEN-T CORE NETWORK CORRIDORSGREEN & EFFICIENT CORRIDORS Transnational dimension Cross-cutting themes: economic, social and territorial cohesion; spatial planning, environmental and climate change objectives + connections to important nodes Management body for each corridor + steering mechanisms (e.g. development plan) Bottom-up approach, strong role of market players Public and private stakeholders sharing goals Corridors following supply chains Connections to build a functional network

10 A 7 ‘I’s for a customised (place-based) BSR transport policy © Wiktor Szydarowski FOUR ‘I’s Internal market Innovating for the future Modern infrastructure and smart funding International dimension THREE ‘I’s Integrate the Baltic Sea Region over the land and maritime borders Interconnect national and regional transport networks Interface public and private strategies and planning frameworks + ensure mobility boost sustainable economic growth and territorial cohesion improve access to different parts of the BSR ensure mobility boost sustainable economic growth and territorial cohesion improve access to different parts of the BSR INTERREG PROGRAMMES AS A LABORATORY FOR 7 ‘I’S?

11 Significant policy and trend drivers…(2) © Wiktor Szydarowski Kimmo Mäki’s presentation at the TransBaltic port debate, Helsinki, 15 June 2012 REROUTING OF FREIGHT FLOWS?

12 Significant policy and trend drivers…(3) © Wiktor Szydarowski CHINA AND AN ARCTIC DIMENSION?

13 Significant policy and trend drivers…(4) © Wiktor Szydarowski N-S vs. E-W RIVALRY?

14 Are we prepared to avoid the worst? © Wiktor Szydarowski Make transport corridors greener but at the same time more attractive for the users (reliability, reduced congestion and low operational cost) Take care of market response and public acceptance Carry out communication campaigns Promote available business models Target corridor performance (harmonise, supervise and repair failures) Install dedicated governance models Develop preparedness measures to mitigate black swan events

15 Confidence based on experience © Wiktor Szydarowski Blueprints = transport greening solutions, which stem from the market needs, are developed with the business stakeholders and which are beneficial for the sustainable regional growth Based on real business cases Applicable to TEN-T core network corridors and other links Examples: −green corridor manual & information broker system −ICT tools (public travel planner, air cargo information system) −sustainable energy programme −logistics learning programme −common service model for logistics centres −new multimodal chains/blocktrains, alternative vehicle fuels for long distance transport, duo-trailer based dry port etc.

16 The BSR as a blueprint laboratory (2014+ outlook) © Wiktor Szydarowski STRATEGIC (EU ↔ BSR relation)… Macroregional specificity? Place-based approach? Context of sustainable regional growth and territorial cohesion? Extend the TEN-T core network corridor philosophy northwards? Anything at the MACRO level to operationalise EUSBSR (PA Transport)? MACRO & CORRIDOR (sustainable multimodal transport system & network of transport corridors) to hold on to… OPERATIONAL (INTERREG programmes)… A meeting place for projects needed from the outset Seed/experimental activities for greening of transport, corridor management, urban mobility etc.? Testing/verification/dissemination of business models and policy conclusions? Pro-activity: look ahead and help prepare for the future!
