By Claus Köllinger / Updated: 19 Apr 2019

On 15 April 2019, the Polish Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Mr. Andrzej Bittel officially presented the CIVITAS PROSPERITY Guide to developing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) to representatives of more than 140 cities and stakeholders. The Guide has been prepared within the framework of the national SUMP Task Force working group and is therefore tailored to national conditions in Poland. 

The aim of the guide is to familiarise Polish cities with the concept and scope of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning. The guide describes SUMPs and all of the key features that should be taken into account when taking up the challenge of preparing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan. The content of the guide adapted for Poland is set to inspire work on the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for many cities, municipalities and regions.

This presentation was made at a conference organised on the development of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, which was the third edition of the Civitas Prosperity SUMP promotion event on 15 April 2019 in Warsaw.

During the event, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of Investment and Development and the Centre for EU Transport Projects signed a joint letter of intent concerning the exchange of information and participation in the pilot preparation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP).

Conference panellists represented both practitioners from local government departments and the scientific and academic community.

The guidelines are available here.
