The 5th European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP), Nicosia (Cyprus)

The 5th European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) took place on 14-15 May in Nicosia, Cyprus.

This annual event for all those involved in putting the SUMP concept into practice serves as a forum for policy makers, practitioners and experts across Europe to network and debate key issues on sustainable urban mobility planning. In line with the European Commission having dedicated the year 2018 to the promotion of multimodality, the theme of the 5th edition was “Planning for multimodal cities”.

Discussions revolved around (i) the overarching policy framework for SUMPs, (ii) the revision of the European Commission’s SUMP guidelines, (iii) the implementation and roll-out of SUMPs and (iv) the local and regional context conditions.

A session co-organized by MobiliseYouCity was dedicated to Eastern Europe. Representatives from Tirana, Sarajevo, Hradrec Kralove, Budapest, Pristina, Palanga, Skopje, Podgrica, Belgrade and Lviv presented the reasons leading their city to engage in the topic of SUMPs, the key measures envisioned and the main challenges for implementation of SUMPs.

Another session was animated by the GoSUMP project to present the projects of the « Med Urban Transports” Community and to transfer their innovative planning approaches from Mediterranean area.
