Cities in Europe are vital centres of economic activity, innovation and employment. However, they face increasing challenges to their mobility systems such as congestion, air pollution, ambient noise, CO2 emissions, road accidents and urban sprawl. To tackle these problems cities need to develop and implement coherent and challenging Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPS).
Organised on the 23rd June 2016 by the CIVITAS Integrated Planning Thematic Group, in collaboration with the European Urban Transport Roadmaps 2030 and the EVIDENCE projects from the European Platform of SUMPs, the webinar presented two new tools that have recently been made available to cities to improve their mobility planning.
The Urban Transport Roadmaps tool is an on-line tool that allow you to explore and identify appropriate sustainable transport policy measures, quantify the transport, environmental and economic impacts of these measures and consider an implementation pathway (roadmap) for the policy scenario.
EVIDENCE offers a range of tools and resources to make the argument for investing in sustainable transport and to assess its economic benefits. Such an enhanced knowledge will help facilitate effective integration of sustainable transport measures into urban mobility plans.
