Inspiration is the catalyst for innovation. Now, for the first time, all CIVITAS Initiative measures carried out between 2002 and 2012 are available in one publication. Aimed at cities and practicioners, the CIVITAS Measure Directory is an essential resource in staying up to date on what has been done and what has worked in the quest for more sustainable urban transport.
Transferring know-how and lessons learned is at the heart of CIVITAS. A Measure Directory, highlighting the achievements of the Initiative from 2002-2012, has just been published, giving offline access to the details of 663 measures for sustainable urban mobility.
This book is intended for cities looking to learn from one another. Technical experts and transport practitioners will benefit from its comprehensive overview of, and introduction to, CIVITAS measures. Published at the end of the third phase of the initiative, it provides short descriptions of all measures implemented during CIVITAS I, II and Plus and is the first hardcopy resource of its kind, incorporating a simple and straightforward means of access through its city/measure matrix. The Directory offers a formidable collection of reference data for future CIVITAS cities and other mobility projects to build on.
The content contained within the directory is sourced from the measure descriptions available online on the CIVITAS website, project reports and feedback from the cities themselves, and fills the gap that occurs when one cannot always be online to access the CIVITAS website. As always, the CIVITAS measures can also be viewed individually online on www.civitas.eu under the heading “Mobility solutions” and the sub-heading “Exploring mobility solutions".
The publication will be mailed to CIVITAS Network cities later this month. A limited number of copies will be available upon request from the secretariat [at] civitas [dot] eu (CIVITAS secretariat). The Measure Directory can be downloaded from the Knowledge Base also.
