Monitoring and evaluation activities deliver data about the progress of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) development process and the impact of policy measures. They are carried out before, during and after the implementation of transport measures. Providing regular information to decision makers, potential funding bodies and local stakeholders can help to demonstrate that a SUMP has delivered, or will deliver, benefits to the community, provides value for money, is worth continuing or requires modifications to be successful.

Systematic monitoring and evaluation increases the efficiency of the planning process and implementation of measures, helps to optimise the use of resources and provides empirical evidence for future planning and appraisal of transport measures.

In order to help tackle typical issues with monitoring and evaluation such as lack of experience, limited resources, and limited knowledge on existing procedures, the CH4LLENGE SUMP Monitoring and Evaluation Manual provides key recommendations regarding procedures, context, indicator selection, communication and process evaluation that has been derived from existing experiences and latest research on state of the art in this field.


Good Example

The Manual was developed in co-operation with cities in the CH4LLENGE project, in particular the city of Dresden and the metropolitan area of West Yorkshire.
