Latest SUMPs-Up news
CIVITAS SUMPs-Up is an EU-funded project that brings together European cities, researchers, universities, environmental organisations, climate institutes, transport consultants and mobility experts into a singular initiative to help cities introduce cleaner, sustainable mobility solutions.
Its focus is to help cities that experience negative effects of transport to develop Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) – strategic long-term planning documents that integrate all transport modes and contribute to balanced environmental, social and economic urban development.
SUMPs-Up assists mobility planning authorities, especially in countries where there are few SUMPs, to overcome the barriers that stop or make it difficult for them to implement the plans.
It provides cities with training opportunities, tools and guidance to help them develop high-quality SUMPs, and works with national governments to raise awareness of the concept and create favourable conditions that will allow local authorities to develop SUMPs easier.
SUMPs-Up provides funding to bring together technical experts to input into the project’s activities and help test its products and services. It also gives financial assistance to enable cities to take part in training support activities, and test pilot SUMP measures.
SUMPs-Up will monitor and evaluate the progress of SUMPs in cities and make real-time improvements to ensure they make the maximum impact.
In 2018, a report was published presenting the status of SUMP in European member states.
