Successfully involving stakeholders

Stakeholder engagement is an important aspect of any decision-making process and is recognised by transport practitioners and decision-makers as a critical factor for successful implementation of mobility measures.

The CIVITAS Initiative has developed a toolkit for use by transport practitioners so they can effectively involve stakeholders in the planning of measures. The toolkit includes elements to help plan, carry out and evaluate the process of engaging stakeholders.

Communicating directly and indirectly with users also helps to demonstrate transparency and a willingness to engage and involve citizens and stakeholders in a dialogue about services which are important to them.

Involving older stakeholders

The AENEAS Stakeholder Involvement Handbook is intended to encourage organisations which are not familiar with stakeholder involvement to try out some of the tools and techniques in their own projects.

Since excellent work has been done in this field before, this document is largely building on these experiences and focusing on older people and relevant stakeholders.

Public participation in sustainable transport

Consultation and participation of key stakeholders and members of the public when developing sustainable transport measures is a valuable process, helping to drive public acceptance and design more effective schemes. This handbook, produced by the GUIDEMAPS project, provides a great deal of advice on this topic together with practical examples from cities that have used innovative public participation strategies to help them to improve their planning and delivery of sustainable transport policies.

Addressing challenges in sustainable urban mobility planning

Although the concept of sustainable urban mobility planning is now mainstream in European cities, a number of common challenges remain. An awareness of these challenges is required so that they can be adequately planned for using Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). Innovative and transferable solutions for these challenges are also being sought at present.
