Webinar: Financing and funding options for Sustainable Urban Mobility
Successful implementation of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) requires ensuring necessary funding for measure implementation. Investment and resources are needed from both the public and private sector. A user needs analysis carried out in the SUMPs-Up project indicates that financing SUMP development and measure implementation is a major barrier for the uptake of the SUMP concept across the EU. Due to a combination of the public sector’s limited financing capacity and the reluctance of the private sector to invest in sustainable transport and mobility projects, municipalities and regions need to seek smart funding and financing options beyond the use of funds from public budgets and ‘classic’ debt financing.
The seventh SUMPs-Up webinar for mobility practitioners will focus on exploring different financing and funding options for SUMPs. The project has developed a guide that supports urban transport practitioners and other stakeholders identifying funding and financing options for the development of SUMPs, the implementation of measures, and the operation of transport services. Additionally we will hear the experiences from the Lisbon Metropolitan Area how they financed their public transport.
