While support is available for local authorities in the selection of measures and measure packages, including SUMPs-Up manuals on the theme, they are nonetheless missing more precise information on how to implement these measures successfully. 

The SUMP Action Plan report seeks to fill this void: it provides city planners with the step-by-step know-how necessary for the development of SUMP action plans. Furthermore, it takes into account different levels of SUMP development experience and SUMP maturity amongst cities.

The report contains the following:

  • guidance in terms of what to include in an action plan, including responsibilities, resources, stakeholder coordination, time plans, and funding sources;
  • a breakdown of developing an action plan into a six-step process, with the final stage of this an implementation plan;
  • examples of action plan templates and a user manual;
  • references to examples of good action plans.
