Generational accounting

The Institute of Public Policy, in partnership with the Economics for Policy of the New School of Business and Economics, is currently developing the research project “Accounts of the State in an intergenerational perspective”. This project is carried out on the initiative and with the support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, following an open call within the framework of its Sustainability Program.

The objective is to make known the real value of the obligations imposed on future generations, based on the commitments already assumed by the State, and to develop a methodology to determine the net contribution of each generation to the State Budget in Portugal.

The Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian’s Sustainability Program aims to promote commitments to future generations and to promote the transition to production and consumption patterns that minimize the use of natural resources and toxic materials, with one of its strategic axes being the Intergenerational Justice theme.
