Analysis of Urban Environmental Policies Assisted by Behavioural Modelling
Air pollution phenomena are essentially dispersed in the urban space, affecting population in a relatively homogeneous way. That is, differences between zones in a given city are so small in comparison with the phenomenon magnitude that is difficult for individuals to perceive them. This inaccurate perception of pollution introduces severe difficulties to analyze, as it is usual in cost-benefit analysis, the net benefits of projects and policies out of the demand reaction to pollution levels, i.e. economic evaluation through revealed preferences.
