Monitoring and evaluation

Subscribe to RSS - Monitoring and evaluation

Urban mobility measures should be monitored and evaluated to understand how they work and perform. This helps cities identify problems and areas for improvement, and record elements that have been a success.

A good monitoring and evaluation system will inform project reports and provide useful data to stakeholders on the urban mobility situation in their city.
