SUMPs for BSR

The project SUMPs for BSR helps smaller municipalities develop and apply sustainable urban mobility plans (SUMPs) to encourage shift towards people's active mobility and thus a healthier lifestyle while reducing traffic emissions at the same time.
Project summary

Cities in the BSR battle with the transition to sustainable mobility and efficient urban planning to fight the climate crisis. Car traffic is still favored in existing plans. The project supports cities in shifting their planning practices towards people-centered sustainable urban mobility planning, focusing on active mobility modes and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle for citizens, while reducing emissions from traffic. Special focus lies on small and mid-sized BSR cities in preparing and implementing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP). The project aims to increase the uptake of SUMPs as a strategic tool for sustainable mobility planning by developing tools and offering extensive capacity building for local authorities. SUMPs for BSR will develop a common framework on monitoring and evaluation for sustainable urban mobility planning that supports cities in the region to set up sound local processes. This helps to evaluate the performance of the local mobility system and to provide crucial information for planning and decision making.The project will develop a model for cities to test and experiment with innovative mobility solutions focusing on active modes such as walking and cycling and change of public spaces. The overall objective is to support BSR cities to develop urban transport systems that are safe, accessible, inclusive, affordable, smart, resilient, and emission-free.
