Summary

The overarching aim of KonSULT is to contribute to the effective generation of policy options for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. The KonSULT online Measure Option Generator is designed to help policy makers, professionals and interest groups to understand the challenges of achieving sustainability in urban transport and to identify appropriate policy measures and packages.

Users specify their context, including their objectives and strategy, and the Measure Option Generator provides suggestions at three levels:

  • an ordered list of individual measures
  • an ordered list of measures which complement a specified measure
  • an ordered list of packages of measures.

Each suggested measure is linked to a fuller description of that measure in KonSULT’s comprehensive Policy Guidebook, which currently (mid 2017) includes 64 measures in seven categories and over 200 case studies.

KonSULT also outlines the process of developing sustainable urban transport strategies through its Decision-Makers' Guidebook.

Good Example

Nine European cities with differing levels of SUMP experience recently tested KonSULT. All nine confirmed that it reflected their understanding of their current policy measures, seven considered that it provided them with new information and five identified possible new policy measures as a result of using it. The less experienced cities had not previously considered the packaging of policy measures and welcomed KonSULT’s guidance on the use of packaging.
