Summary

National SUMP Supporting Programmes (NSSPs) are run at the national or regional government level to encourage, support, require and/or give incentives and disincentives to cities and other local governments to implement SUMPs. Countries and regions that are known for a long history of SUMP activity, such as England, France, Catalunya, Flanders, Slovenia and to an ex-tent Sweden, are all countries that have also had a national SUMP supporting programme in place, often for many years. it is clear therefore that an SSSP is associated with more and longer-lived SUMP activity – not surprisingly, given that cities often take their policy lead, and often receive money, from higher levels of government.
