Mobility Practitioner Webinar: Financing and funding options for sustainable urban mobility

Tuesday 10 December 2019, 10:00-11:30 CET

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 sectors. 

A user needs analysis carried out in SUMPs-Up 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 to identiy funding and financing options for the development of SUMPs, the implementation of measures, and the operation of transport services.

In addition, a city will present its innovative way of financing its SUMP measures.

The webinar is one in a series of SUMPs-Up webinars provided for mobility practitioners around Europe focusing on different SUMP topics. Watch previous webinars here.
