Urban mobility planning and policy - best practice from EU for third countries,

In recent years, there has been a growing interest from third countries to learn from European experience in the area of sustainable urban mobility. In response to this, the European Commission's Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport has just published two booklets.

European Urban Mobility: Policy Context

For decades the European Commission has been stimulating the development and application of new sustainable urban mobility planning approaches and innovative solutions through its policies, through the European Structural and Investment Funds and through its research and innovation funding programmes. Europe has unique and widely respected experience on sustainable urban mobility. The European Commission would like to ensure that this experience is shared with stakeholders across the world. This booklet presents a compact over view of the main features of the European Union's urban mobility policy, related policies, underlying  trends, funding instruments and possibilities for cooperation.

This publication has been prepared principally for the benefit of cities and stakeholders in third countries. It provides an overview of EU urban mobility policy and expertise, with links to specific policy areas (energy, environment, climate change, employment and growth).

Sustainable Urban Mobility: European Policy, Practice, and Solutions

EU experience and expertise in the area of urban mobility (particularly regarding energy efficiency and climate change) is available to support sustainable mobility in countries outside the EU, facing similar issues. An important concept in addressing the challenges related to (mainly) urban areas, is that of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), which are the focus of an annex of the Urban Mobility Package. The concept of SUMPs relates to a functional urban area and its surroundings, focussing on the people within this area rather than directly on the transport, with the aim of creating a shift towards cleaner and more sustainable transport modes and alternatives to car use and ownership.

This booklet addresses city stakeholders in third countries, who are directly or indirectly involved in urban mobility planning. It showcases relevant EU urban mobility know-how, in order to provide replicable solutions to urban mobility issues.
