Indicator-based evaluation of inter-linkages between different sustainable development objectives (INDI-LINK)

The INDI-LINK project has three main objectives: (1) further improvement of sustainable development indicators (SDI), (2) assessment of interlinkages between the different priorities of the EU SDS and (3) deriving conclusions for future SD policy making. To achieve these objectives, INDI-LINK will develop new concepts and methods and improve data for the calculation of selected 'best-needed' and proxy indicators; test different methods for extending indicator time series through forecasting; review emerging policy areas, for which no indicators exist so far; develop a solid conceptual framework for interlinkage assessment based on a comparative analysis of analytical frameworks, methods and tools; provide a quantitative analysis of interlinkages using select ed indicators with best-suited assessment methods and identify most effective combinations of environmental, economic and social policy measures, focusing on the maximum use of synergies and best possible mitigation of potential trade-offs. A series of 4 workshops will be organised, where representatives of relevant DGs and external experts will be involved. The INDI-LINK consortium has a well-established institutional balance and includes four university institutes, one national statistical institute, one public-private research institute and three private research institutions (SMEs). As INDI-LINK partners are coordinating or participating in a number of other relevant projects on the EU level, INDI-LINK will provide and make full use of synergies with projects such as MATISSE, Sustainability A-Test, SUSTOOLS, FORESCENE and MOSUS. The project will provide recommendations for priorities in future SDI development on the EU level, for future assessments of interlinkages and for an effective implementation of t he revised EU SDS, with a particular focus on policy integration across different SD dimensions.


Evaluation and forecasting of gas consumption by statistical analysis
Gorucu, FB; Gumrah, F (2004-02-01)
This study includes an approach to understand the factors affecting gas demand and to forecast gas consumption by multivariable regression analysis for the capital city of Ankara, Turkey. The process of the study is developing a statistical model and testing the model for the past years to understand how accurate it is. After obtaining the most reliable model, forecasting the gas consumption for the remaining days of 2002 and the year 2005 is performed. During the project, by the means of economical conditi...
District-index insurance program: basic model and pricing
Ayberk, İdil; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2015)
The aim of this work is to build an inital model for and calculate the premium of an insurance scheme against drought proposed by TARSIM. The payoff of the insurance scheme is similar to that of a call option on the yield variable. We compute the premium using normal, gamma and beta distribution for the yield and examine how the premium depends on the parameters of these distributions. We find that, when we fix the mean and the variance of the yield, the premium computed under different distributions depend...
Common agricultural policy regionalised impact - the rural development dimension (CAPRI-RD)
Öcal, Nadir(2013-4-30)
The Common Agricultural Policy Regionalised Impact – the Rural Development Dimension (CAPRI-RD) aims to develop and apply an operational, Pan-European tool including all Candidate and Potential Candidate countries to analyse the regional impacts of all policy measures under CAP Pillar I and II across a wide range of economic, social and environmental indicators, aligned with the CMEF. CAPRI-RD’s core contains consistently linked economic models at the NUTS 2 level, the CAPRI model for agriculture, and a new...
Optimal capital structure for build-operate-transfer power projects
Arıcı, Erdem; Arıkan, Metin S.; Department of Civil Engineering (2003)
Observing the deficiencies of traditional methods in meeting the demands of today̕s infrastructure development has been motivating countries towards privatization of these sectors. However, due to the differences in these sectors as compared to other businesses, privatization can not be performed without strict regulations. Today, concession agreements like BOT models seem the best way for solving the problems. Financing of concession agreements plays a key role. In Turkey, most BOT projects are financed by...
Forecasting Turkish real GDP growth in a data-rich environment
Sen Dogan, Bahar; Midilic, Murat (2019-01-01)
This study generates nowcasts and forecasts for the growth rate of the gross domestic product in Turkey using 204 daily financial series with mixed data sampling (MIDAS) framework. The daily financial series include commodity prices, equity indices, exchange rates, and global and domestic corporate risk series. Forecasting exercises are also carried out with the daily factors extracted from separate financial data classes and from the whole dataset. The findings of the study suggest that MIDAS regression mo...
