Eltis Training, planning for more resilient and robust urban mobility

By Simone Bosetti / Updated: 30 Jun 2021

The training session, held online on 29 June 2021, built upon the recently-published SUMP Topic Guide “Planning for more resilient and robust urban mobility” and involved several CIVITAS (and other) projects that have implemented resilient measures in their pilot cities.

It examined the concept of resilience, and provided a series of transferrable case studies and recommendations on how to plan for resilience and mobility at a time of crisis. A hand-on exercise gave participants the opportunity to work in small groups on measure planning with resilience.
