Definition - A comprehensive record of the current situation (e.g. existing infrastructure, modal split, congestion, air pollution levels, etc.) used to inform plan preparation. Establishing a baseline also allows for progress to be measured.
Relevance to SUMP - A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan should provide a comprehensive review of the current situation and, through an urban mobility performance audit, establish a baseline against which future progress can be measured. This analysis should include a review of the institutional set-up, planning process and delivery mechanisms.
