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.

Today, many trips that are carried out using conventional cars could be done by light electric vehicles (LEVs). This would make urban transport much more sustainable. Emissions would “evaporate”, congestion would be reduced, transport would become safer, quieter and cheaper and public health would improve. Overall, replacement of car trips by LEV trips would make our cities much more liveable.

While there are many ways to improve and extend sustainable public transport in cities throughout the world, this webinar will explore two of them: bus rapid transit (BRT) and clean vehicles. Corresponding technology, cost-efficiency issues and relevant examples will be discussed. Methods for identifying a city’s long-term public transport needs and developing feasible measures to meet these needs will also be introduced.

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 Webinars

Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet, whether the aim is to improve the municipal fleet (including public transport vehicles) or to encourage residents to choose alternatively fuelled or electric vehicles over conventionally fuelled vehicles. This interactive webinar will provide an introduction to electric vehicles (EVs) as well as guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban environments. Options on fostering EV deployment and examples from cities around the world will be discussed.

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.

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

The overall mission of SOLUTIONS is to support the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions in Europe and other regions in the world, in particular in Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean. The project addresses urban mobility solutions around six thematic clusters: public transport, transport infrastructure, city logistics, integrated planning/SUMP, network and mobility management and clean vehicles. This course addresses the field of clean vehicles and focuses on electric vehicles in particular.

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 Training Kit

SOLUTIONS will look at clean vehicles to consider readily available fuels, technologies, and energy-efficient options that offer substantial greenhouse gas emission reductions potential. The suitability of different option of clean vehicle technology depends not only on the local circumstances, but also on the national framework. The measures and solutions selected will cover a spectrum of technology options and vehicle categories to offer clean vehicle solutions to the variety of cities in the different regions. Important considerations will be the prerequisites for the application of different technologies and fuels, their feasibility in the local framework and the side effects that might be associated with their application. By building on experiences gained by other cities as fostered in the SOLUTIONS project, municipalities can reduce the risk of implementating clean vehicle technology, by determining potential investment costs and possible side effects. With regards to CO2 emitted by energy consumption, SOLUTIONS will take into account the full life cycle and Well-to-Wheel phase to ensure sustainability of the solutions suggested.
