When a final set of measures has been selected, it is time to assign responsibilities and resources. A clear picture of who is in charge of an action and where the funding comes from is a cornerstone of every Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan. This requires close coordination and discussion among all actors that will have a role in developing and implementing the measures or packages of measures.
- Identify required resources and responsibilities for the implementation of the selected (packages of) measures.
- Assure that all measures are clearly prioritised and realistically deliverable.
- Secure efficient and effective allocation of resources (human, knowledge, funds).
- Ensure close coordination with stakeholders for implementation.
- Discuss the proposed measures with the stakeholders who could potentially play a role in designing and implementing them.
- Identify options for who can take the lead in implementing a measure and where the funding could come from.
- Validate a realistic plan: check the consistency between planned activities, targets aimed at and allocated budgets.
- Ensure good coordination between different funding sources.
- Organise meetings with concerned stakeholders to discuss and agree on responsibilities and resources.
