SUMPs are traditionally targeted at larger cities, normally above 100.000 inhabitants. However, half of European citizens live in smaller cities and towns, facing their own specific sustainable mobility and transport planning challenges. Thus, this training takes a closer look at the opportunities and challenges related to introduction of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) to small and mid-sized cities. Since there are already several examples and methodologies available of experience with SUMPs in this type of cities, a range of lessons-learned and case studies are on the table. Furthermore, recent evidence shows that the SUM planning concept can be successfully tailored to projects on different levels (micro, local, regional, national).
