CIVITAS e-course

The Urban Nodes e-course is about how to improve the efficiency of the transport system in an urban node of the Trans-European Transport (TEN-T) core network. Urban nodes are at the intersection of TEN-T infrastructure and urban infrastructure.

Across a total of six course units, it covers topics including the legal framework and policy context of urban nodes and TENT, a methodology for doing so, and the "why" and "what" of the integration.

CIVITAS e-course

This e-course is about regional cooperation in the field of mobility. Through a cooperative approach, there are mutual wins for individual cities and the region as a whole.

In this course, you will be introduced to regional cooperation approaches, with concrete examples and recommendations for overcoming governance, funding, or cooperation-related barriers. Multimedia examples such as video material help illustrate such approaches.

SUTP Webinar

Tackling transport challenges is crucial for sustainable urban development. Transforming urban transport systems towards being inclusive, safe, clean and low-carbon requires multiple and comprehensive action of a wide range of stakeholders. This has been recognized by the Paris Agreement and the NDC’s in which many countries dedicatedly focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions of urban transport. The Agenda 2030 includes the target to improve the access to urban transport in the urban SDG 11 whereas other targets on air pollution, road safety, energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction require particular attention to urban transport. Further, theNew Urban Agenda will outline the responsibilities and necessary steps to empower cities and local governments to realize their ambitions on improving urban mobility and reducing the negative impact of transport in urban areas. In the webinar, Cornie Huizenga, Secretary General of the Sustainable Low Carbon Transport Partnership (SLoCaT) and Oliver Lah (Wuppertal Institute, Member of the Habitat III Policy Unit 9 on Urban Services and Technology) provide an overview on urban mobility in the global climate agreement, the Agenda 2030 as well as up-to-date insights into the current work of the Habitat III Policy Units whose work is decisive for shaping the New Urban Agenda.

CIVITAS thematic course

The delivery of goods makes up a significant share of traffic in European cities and is a major contributor to deteriorating air quality, rising carbon emissions and congestion. CIVITAS cities encourage the use of cleaner freight vehicles and are developing solutions to better coordinate freight logistics. More efficient freight deliveries can reduce congestion, lower emissions and free up space for sustainable modes.

SOLUTIONS

The concept of sustainable urban mobility planning goes beyond traditional transport planning, emphasising the involvement of citizens and stakeholders, policy coordination between sectors and authority levels, and between neighbouring authorities. This interactive webinar offers an overview of the SUMP concept, with further group discussion focused on case examples and transferability to a variety of local context conditions.

SOLUTIONS

The way that goods are transported within a city and delivered to their final destination has a direct impact on traffic congestion, pollution and noise. This interactive webinar will present solutions to these main challenges for city logistics, focusing on improving the overall efficiency of goods deliveries in cities. Further discussion will be related to consideration for labour, safety issues and enhancing the quality of urban transport services for the clients and the economy.

SOLUTIONS Training Kit

The main point to address in ‘city logistics’ is how to respond to freight requirements while decreasing environmental and social impacts. The ultimate goal being to decrease the flows of commercial road vehicles without increasing other flows like consumer car flows, to decrease commercial vehicles’ emissions and to prevent traffic congestion caused by vans and lorries double-parking during delivery. SOLUTIONS will look at policy options for public authorities to achieve these goals, including regulations (traffic restriction, low emissions zones), transport pricing and taxes, transport planning and the development of infrastructure dedicated to urban freight (lorry lanes, delivery and loading spaces, urban consolidation centres). Public authorities and private operators, both of whom have an interest in improving their vehicle fuel efficiency, consolidating of urban freight, and improving the efficiency of deliveries, have to work together to define the best urban freight schemes.

SOLUTIONS

This course consists of 7 units. It offers an overview of the SUMP concept and its benefits, describes the ever-growing importance of SUMPs around the world, identifies some of the challenges of integrating individual innovative mobility measures into the larger context of an SUMP and offers suggestions to overcome those challenges. By the end of the course, you will have gained comprehensive and structured knowledge about the procedural elements of the SUMP cycle.

SOLUTIONS Training Kit

SOLUTIONS will focus on infrastructure for public transport (tramways, bus lanes, passenger waiting and boarding areas), infrastructure for soft modes (e.g. cycle routes, pedestrian facilities) and infrastructure for urban freight systems. Quality passenger transport is highly dependent on improved infrastructure whilst continued efficient operations are reliant on adequate and timely maintenance. This element will also include better sharing of road-space between guided vehicles (e.g. trams and guided buses) and bus lanes as well as separate dedicated public transport routes. With respect to walking and cycling, easy substitutes for trips of less than 5 kilometers, improvements in infrastructure quality and safety, design of cycle ways and pavements, parking spaces for bicycles, and more will be addressed. Freight transport infrastructure issues to be considered will include loading areas, appropriate access control including signage as well as other measures to improve productivity with reduced disruption.

SOLUTIONS Knowledge Sharing Kit

Sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) aims to support local authorities to plan and manage urban mobility more efficiently and fairly. With a focus on people, accessibility for all sectors of society and quality of life, this new planning paradigm is interdisciplinary and looks beyond geographical and institutional boundaries. This can be achieved by considering the local circumstances and needs and involving a wide range of stakeholders and the engagement of citizens in the decision making and planning process. In SOLUTIONS, leading cities will transfer their knowledge and experiences to take-up cities world-wide. For example, SOLUTIONS partner EMBARQ has already started to ‘tropicalize’ the EU guidelines for the Brazilian context, where sustainable urban mobility planning has become mandatory for cities. SOLUTIONS will provide take-up cities with practical experiences, training activities, study tours and practical exchange. The aim is to enable cities to start and implement SUMPs according to their local circumstances and to assist cities to make their cities economically robust, improve their environmental conditions and the make the city a liveable place for all citizens.

SOLUTIONS

This course consists of 6 units. It offers an overview of design of urban streets (sharing of road space) and the design for the cycling infrastructure improving the safety of infrastructure. We've tried to keep the course concrete and hands-on; each unit has a homework task that involves examining and researching your own local context or looking at examples from other places to see how they might apply to your context.
