Publication date: 
March, 2020

A series of guides were published with the second edition of the EU SUMP Guidelines. They provide in-depth planning recommendations on crucial SUMP topics, provide guidance for specific contexts, and focus on important policy fields. CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project authored or co-authored several of the publications. One of them is the SUMP topic guide: Sustainable urban mobility planning in metropolitan region.

Sustainable urban mobility planning on the metropolitan scale requires specific guidance and concrete examples that can inspire metropolitan regions around Europe to overcome the specific governance, funding or cooperation related barriers that they face. Bearing this in mind, the guide offers support for providing a common definition of mobility planning at the metropolitan region, examples and lessons learned, and recommendations on different aspects and steps of the planning process, taking into account different institutional context conditions.
