Almost half (44%) of all EU urban citizens live in ‘medium-sized’ city regions of less than 500,000. There is still a need to take into account the requirements of the authorities of small and medium sized cities and to address existing capacity shortfalls in order to maintain and normalise sustainable mobility in policy making and transport planning and to improve the quality of urban life.
The key driver and change agent for sustainable development in transport is the city with its local authorities, stakeholder organisations and citizens. in tjis Multiplier workshop, the SUITS project will share best practice and will present a range of materials and tools to enable, in particular, small and medium-sized cities to increase capacity to finance and implement sustainable transport measures and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) that support mobility transformation. The SUITS project’s research proves that investing in capacity building of local authorities in Small-Medium cities, results fast to successful implementation of transport strategies and measures for green sustainable mobility; being a vital step to SUMPs successful implementation.
