New podcast zooms in on Eastern Europe to look at SUMPs through a different lens

Towns and cities all across Europe experience unique local challenges when developing their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP).

Geographical and cultural contexts play a major role and mean that a diversified approach to SUMP development is necessary.

But what are these differences? How do they impact on and differentiate SUMP development?

A new podcast from the CIVITAS SUMP projects (PROSPERITY, SUITS, and SUMPs-Up) sheds light on the challenges that towns and cities in Eastern and Central Europe face when developing and implementing their SUMPs.

Seven cities from seven countries across the region discussed their experiences in SUMP development. They were Belgrade (Republic of Serbia), Budapest (Hungary), Hradec Kralove (Czech Republic), Lviv (Ukraine), Palanga (Lithuania), Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), and Skopje (Republic of Macedonia).

Budapest, Hradec Kralove, and Palanga are SUMPs-Up, PROSPERITY and SUITS partner cities respectively.

Some issues recurred in numerous cities, whilst others arose due to particular local specificities. What united them all, however, was their need for support and expert guidance in developing their SUMPs.
