Guidelines – Developing and Implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan
The European Unions Guidelines for developing and implementing a sustainable urban mobility plan published by the European Union on the ELTIS Website are intended for local authorities, urban transport and mobility practitioners, as well as other stakeholders involved in the preparation of a SUMP. Each step of the plan development process is illustrated with good practice examples, tools and references to further Information. Download the European Unions publication ‘Guidelines – Developing and Implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan’ and find more Information on the European Platform on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, including the publication in different languages and more information on sustainable urban mobility planning.
MobiliseYourCity 12 Messages for our Beneficiary Partners
MobiliseYourCity supports and engages local and national partner governments in improving urban mobility planning & finance by providing a methodological framework and technical assistance, through capacity building, and by enabling access to funding at both local and national levels. The MobiliseYourCity Partnership developed 12 Messages for sustainable urban mobility planning for our beneficiary partners in emerging and developing countries. The 12 Messages are to adopt a user oriented planning approach, plan urban mobility to improve living conditions, to protect the planet and to support local economy, consider urban mobility as a key component of your urban planning, take advantage of innovative approaches and digital transformation, aim at maximum transport efficiency, emphasize effective governance as a key success factor, establish a sustainable financing scheme, ensure participation of citizens and stakeholders, develop human capacities, manage the continuous collection and use of data.
MobiliseYourCity Factsheet on National Urban Mobility Policies
Most countries have historically grown regulations on urban mobility planning as well as on urban mobility measures and different transport modes. However, they are often not integrated towards the overarching sustainable development goals and the particular needs of cities. To address these, countries like Brazil, India, Mexico and many others have developed dedicated national urban mobility policies, investment programs or laws. MobiliseYourCity will support the development of NUMPs and make a contribution to an intensified exchange of experiences on NUMP design and implementation. Learning, Innovation and Capacity Development are decisive for successful development and implementation of NUMPs and thus form integral part of MobiliseYourCity support. MobiliseYourCity will be working with national governments, donor agencies and hired international and national consultants.
MobiliseYourCity Factsheet on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans
The old-fashioned “predict-and-provide” approach to transport planning leads to enormous investments in roads and highways worldwide – and to a growing number of cars using them. Today, quality of life, economic activity and the need to reduce local pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions play a stronger role in urban and mobility planning. Hence, in order to cater for the mobility needs of people and businesses, investments in sustainable transport projects and measures are prioritized by more and more cities. The concept of sustainable urban mobility considers all transport modes (i.e. including cycling, walking, public and individual transport) as well as urban functionalities and development objectives (i.e. quality of life, access for all societal groups, public space, urban logistics, air quality). MobiliseYourCity provides technical assistance to beneficiary cities in order to enable them to develop powerful and feasible strategies to enhance urban mobility.
Urban Mobility: A Source of Solutions Against Climate Change
This publication from AFD and CODATU presents the low-carbon urban mobility solutions that meet both local and climate issues. Besides its impact in reducing GHG emissions, the transformation of urban transport systems responds to local needs. The idea is to ensure “livable” cities despite their very fast development and the growing flow of cars and motorbikes. The challenge is thus to limit the congestion of road infrastructure, which paralyses cities and reduces their economic growth potential; to limit air pollution and to improve road safety. Solutions do exist to resolve these local problems while fighting climate change. The document aims at presenting the different levers for actions and the tools that can be used by local and national decision makers. It underlines the challenges of the coordination of stakeholders, the consistency of policies, the integration of transport modes and the implementation of long-term funding models.

Urban Mobility Plans – National Approaches and Local Practice
The Sustainable Urban Transport Technical Document #13 published by GIZ reviews approaches for Urban Mobility Plans (UMP) from various countries and showcases a growing number of examples calling for a shift away from the traditional, infrastructure-oriented approach towards sustainable and people-oriented planning. The paper’s intension is to support local policy-makers and planners in shaping urban mobility planning processes and policies in an effective and inclusive manner.
