The CIVITAS PROSPERITY final brochure is out now!
The Horizon 2020 financed SUMP project CIVITAS PROSPERITY that supports local and national governments to improve the quality and take-up of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans is in its final months of duration.
The main concept of CIVITAS PROSPERITY was to get the national level involved actively in supporting cities to develop SUMPs. This happened in two ways: Firstly, in regular international peer-to-peer exchange between the national and regional level authorities of different countries, where they could learn about each other’s national SUMP activities. And secondly, in a development process in each project country, in which the national level interacted – and still interacts – with the cities and other important stakeholders in a national SUMP task force.
In all 13 countries of CIVITAS PROSPERITY focus national/regional SUMP supporting programmes (or roadmaps for a programme) have been designed with the support of, and contributions from the highest level of administration in these countries and regions.
The final brochure provides an excellent overview on what has been done, on results and what could be achieved in this project.
