Successful peer review of the starting process of a SUMP with a specific focus on resilience in the Vesuvian area (Italy)

All the presentations and the summary report of the peer review exercise about starting a SUMP process with a specific focus on resilience are now available at the event webpage.

The municipality of San Giuseppe Vesuviano (Italy) is leading a number of Vesuvian towns located around the volcano (around 160.00 inhabitants) in their challenges towards sustainable urban mobility.
In the area, the eruption risk and emergency response should be properly addressed with proactive city planning. For this reason a “resilient Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan” is going to be developed.

In this respect, a peer review exercise (PRE) was organized within the CIVITAS Integrated Planning Thematic Group on 29th July 2015, aiming at collecting suggestions and relevant information for the preparatory work needed to start a SUMP process with a specific focus on resilience.

A PRE is organized in order to let a group of experts from different cities working in similar issues to evaluate local policies, programmes and practices being implemented in a particular city and based on this to give recommendations on possible areas of improvement.

If you are interested in having a peer review of the policies of your city, don’t hesitate to contact the thematic moderator of the respective CIVITAS Thematic Group.
