CIVITAS

There are several examples of city streets converted to a more balanced coexistence of different road users. Traffic calming measures and other innovative nterventions can create safer and more fluent mobility conditions for cars, public transport and goods vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. Which are the most attractive and low cost solutions? Can road design be used also for fast interventions and for active involvement of citizens in testing new traffic rules and more sustainable modes? CIVITAS WIKI and the Thematic Group Safety and Security invite you to interact, share your experiences and your questions.

GEF-SUTP Training Modules on Sustainable Urban Transport Planning (2013)

The Government of India (GoI) initiated the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), UNDP, and the World Bank. The objective of the SUTP is to facilitate the provision of urban transport infrastructure and services in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP), which is a shift towards public transport and other sustainable modes of travel. One major component of this project involves building capacity amongst practitioners in the field of urban transport in order to strengthen policy making, decision-making, project implementation and management, operations and project evaluation skills at the central, state and city levels. The capacity building component of GEF - SUTP aims to establish the needed capacity for regular skill development of practitioners, public officials, other public functionaries, and urban professionals in the field of urban transport to be able to find solutions to these problems and apply the skills to planning. Accordingly, a set of 10 subject modules, each for a group of topics on subjects associated with sustainable urban transport planning, were developed by EMBARQ India, GIZ-SUTP and UMTC. These 10 modules are structured in such a way so as to provide the necessary background together with case studies and relevant learning’s for India that will provide a base to build capacity amongst the practitioners, city officials, etc.

The material is an introduction to the topic of sustainable mobility campaigns. The module aims to assist transport practitioners beginning sustainable mobility campaigns. Therefore it is designed mainly to set up and carry out small campaigns. Nonetheless, this material also gives information on planning and implementing as well as best practise information for large scale campaigns.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD, and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Mobility Management' organised a webinar on 22nd January 2013 about how to encourage a sustainable shift in mobility behaviour away from the personal car and how to assure basic mobility for all citizens by providing mobility training for specific target groups. Training is often associated with children and youngsters. Many adults however miss the basic knowledge or skills to use certain transport modes, at risk of social isolation. Through five presentations and a 15-minute discussion, this webinar looked at training initiatives that enable different target groups to master and choose the mode of transport that best fits their needs and trip purposes. Both CIVITAS and non-CIVITAS experiences were presented.
