Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators

The Sustainable Urban Mobility Indicators (SUMI) project invites you to save the date for the launch of its online indicator training course!

The course is aimed at representatives of urban areas that want to measure and track the performance of sustainable mobility and mobility professionals that would like to better understand the collection of urban mobility data.

Course tutors will provide expert insight to familiarise participants with the SUMI indicator set and to offer guidance in the process of applying the indicators with real-world examples.

During the course, mobility experts will be on hand to answer any questions participants may have about the indicators. Participants will also be able to access online course materials and an online forum at any point after the course finishes.

The course is structured along four main themes:

  • Introduction and Current Mobility Situation
  • Public Transport System
  • Transport Externalities
  • Integration and Next Steps

The course will conclude with a live webinar highlighting the performance of a custom-made benchmarking tool that will compare the performance of the cities who participated in the initial testing and revision of the SUMI indicator set.

The eCourse will be launched on 18 November and will be active until 13 December.

Participants can access the course on the Rupprecht Consult eLearning Platform.

Learn all about Dutch Cycling Infrastructure Design This training will equip you with a solid set of technical and policy-making skills for developing cycling policy and planning cycling infrastructure.

One of the most renowned manuals for cycling infrastructure design is the Cycling Design Manual. This manual was edited by DTV Consultants and published by the Dutch CROW institute – leading institute for infrastructure design. It is based on decades of research into Dutch cycling policy and infrastructure development. The manual is relevant for both starting and mature cyclist infrastructure designers. It comprises a step-by-step guide for developing a cycling policy and creating safe infrastructure designs.

DTV Consultants – with more than 25 years of experience in delivering training courses and professional education – has put together a unique training course aimed at professionals in cycling policy and cycling infrastructure planning. This five-day course will teach you how to apply the CROW Cycling Design Manual to your situation. Moreover, we will teach you to develop cycling policy and infrastructure.

Sharing Cities Webinar Series

Sharing Cities and CIVITAS TRACE projects have organised a joint webinar on experiences related to mobility. Both projects work with this topic from different angles, providing a good opportunity to share and learn. EUROCITIES hosted the webinar as replication lead of Sharing Cities with speakers from the Energy Agency of Plovdiv (TRACE) and CEiiA (Sharing Cities) on 2 February 2018 from 11:00 to 12:45. The webinar was on behavioural change to ensure a greater effectiveness and acceptance by citizens of new mobility measures.
 

Ina Karova, from the Energy Agency of Plovdiv, presented the TRACE project which develops ICT-based tracking tools to optimise the planning and implementation of walking and cycling policies; all tools are accompanied by campaigns for their procurement. TRACE will end in May 2018 and has therefore already produced some valuable information that will be shared with you.

The lead partner in TRACE is the Technical University of Lisboa, which can also support the city of Lisbon in implementing those new solutions.

Carolina Carli from CEiiA presented the status of mobility measures in Lisbon, one of the lighthouse cities within Sharing Cities, highlighting the use cases which aim to change behaviours.

SUTP Webinar

Cycling has the capability to contribute substantially to livable cities. It has seen a massive boost in popularity all over the world during the last years. This has mainly been due to grass-roots initiatives, spreading a bicycle culture to places that used to be dominated by cars - with powerful impact: The “Bike Revolution” is shaping cities with their action and pushes urban and transport planners to consider their needs in future development. This local Engagement becomes more and more important on a global agenda as well. In October, Habitat-III will take place in Quito. The New Urban Agenda (NUA), the outcome document of the conference, has the ambition to set out universal guidelines for forward-looking urban development. Hence, embedding bicycle culture in the NUA is crucial to establish and underline its importance for sustainable mobility in cities worldwide. In the webinar JP Amaral (Bike Anjo, Brazil), and Ksenia Semenova (Kyiv Cyclists’ Association, Ukraine, and vice-president of the European Cyclists Federation) highlight the experiences of the bike revolutions in their cities and countries. Furthermore, Marcio Deslandes (European Cyclists Federation) will demonstrate how the HABITAT-III process is linked to this local engagement and present their work on the role of cycling in the New Urban Agenda.

SUTP

Bicycles are an increasingly popular mode of transport in cities around the developing and developed world alike. However, many cities do not have sufficient technical tools or knowledge to develop comprehensive plans to increase safety and convenience for users of this vehicle. However, many kilometres of cycling infrastructure have been added to cities (not only) in European and Latin American cities, turning those cities from pioneers in cycling development in their countries into true cycling cities. In this webinar, Alejandra Leal (México City), Georgios Kontos (Regional Planning authority region Frankfurt-RheinMain), Carlos Pardo (Bogotá) present different approaches to comprehensively develop cycling as a mode of transport. Subsequently, we will discuss the key elements of cycle-inclusive planning and implementation.

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.
