How do you ensure the implementation of measures in a sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMP)? How do you engage decision makers in the SUMP process?

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up's fourth webinar for mobility practitioners will explore these crucial questions by focusing on an important milestone in the SUMP process – developing the SUMP action plan and ensuring political commitment to it.

The action plan forms the core part of a SUMP, as it provides a clarification of how to reach the targets that have been set within the plan. To ensure wide support for it, gaining political commitment to the related actions and engaging politicians in the SUMP process is crucial.

This webinar will see the city of Budapest (Hungary) present how it has engaged its decision makers in their local SUMP process. The webinar will also present the manual produced by SUMPs-Up to help local authorities prepare action plans.

The manual suggests one way of developing an action plan that is suitable for most cities, particularly those who do not yet have much SUMP experience. It outlines the steps for preparing the action plan, which are illustrated by examples from cities, and includes a concrete action plan template.
