Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMPs)
A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) is a strategic plan developed in a participatory and integrated way to meet people's and businesses' mobility needs in cities and to harmonize and integrate existing planning approaches. It sets cities on a sustainable course regarding land use and urban mobility. Because each city is starting with a different baseline of transport plans, the MobiliseYourCity implementing partners and city members work together to adapt the SUMP process for local needs.
On this page, you can find all the resources that MobiliseYourCity has made available to support the preparation and development of a SUMP. These resources include guidelines, methodologies, tools, training materials, sample documents and case studies.
Guidelines and methodologies
The SUMP guidelines and methodologies constitute the MobiliseYourCity approach to preparing and developing a SUMP. This set of publications aims to provide methodological support to practitioners with practical, detailed guidance along the process: the SUMP Cycle. These documents provide a step-by-step standard formula that needs to be adapted depending on the needs and the context.
The guidelines and methodologies aim at addressing technical and operational concerns about sustainable urban mobility planning for practitioners and policy-makers in developing and emerging economies in the most relevant and efficient manner.
