www.sump-challenges.eu Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP): – strategic document designed to contribute to meeting the European climate and energy targets – builds on existing planning practices and takes account of integration, participation and evaluation principles. In CH4LLENGE, nine European cities and eight supporting organisations have teamed up to tackle the four most pressing challenges in sustainable urban mobility planning Support of up to 30 Follower Cities who receive tailor-made advice from the CH4LLENGE SUMP Expert Team Introduction
www.sump-challenges.eu Assessing the impact of measures and evaluating the mobility planning process Actively involving local stakeholders and citizens in mobility planning processes Improving geographic, political, administrative and interdepartmental cooperation Identifying the most appropriate package of measures to meet a city’s policy objectives The Four Challenges
www.sump-challenges.eu Participation in SUMP development Definition: Participation reflects the overall integration of citizens and stakeholder groups in planning processes and policy decision-making. The concept of sustainable urban mobility planning establishes the principle that the public should be involved from the very beginning of a transport planning process to its final phase Barriers to involving stakeholders and citizens successfully, include the lack of political will and low priority given to participation within the administration; limited financial and personnel capacities to set-up, manage, carry out and evaluate a structured involvement process and the low interest and awareness of strategic transport planning among citizens and stakeholder groups. Promising approaches to improve participation processes are the development of local participation guidelines and a dedicated participation plan; a careful selection of participation formats with respect to capacities, target groups and planning phases, and the critical analysis of participation procedures
www.sump-challenges.eu Participation addressed in CH4LLENGE Analyses of participation practices and experiences with different participation formats in CH4LLENGE cities of national policies influencing participation procedures at the local level and of studies, projects and local case examples for participation in Europe and beyond Training and knowledge sharing Workshop about citizen engagement and stakeholder involvement Knowledge generation via Online-Learning Training of young professionals in five CH4LLENGE Universities Implementation Test of innovative participation formats and approaches in local participation pilots of the nine CH4LLENGE cities Take-Up Development of a comprehensive manual on participation in SUMP development and implementation
www.sump-challenges.eu Institutional Cooperation in SUMP development Definition: Institutional cooperation comprises collaboration and joint working within and across organisations in order to develop and implement a plan. Such cooperation may require the sharing of objectives, knowledge, resources, powers or consent between several actors. Institutional cooperation might be: Vertical – between national level and regional level, between city and district or Horizontal – between two municipalities in a region Barriers for effective institutional cooperation include Lack of functionality of the partnership: does the partnership provide political buy-in, access to stakeholder views and relevant skills and knowledge? Are all transport (and information) networks included in the partnership? Do they contribute to deliver the plan? Operational issues: how do we manage large groups of institutional stakeholders, as well as their contribution in delivering the plan? Promising approaches to improve institutional cooperation are New institution building; Local partnerships built on functionality of institutional partners; Tools to assign responsibilities across partners throughout the plan development and delivery (e.g. RASCI matrix)
www.sump-challenges.eu Institutional Cooperation in CH4LLENGE? Analyses of institutional cooperation practices and experiences with different institutional settings in CH4LLENGE cities of national policies influencing institutional cooperation at the local level and of studies, projects and local case examples for institutional cooperation in Europe and beyond Training and knowledge sharing Workshop about institutional cooperation (Leeds, November 2013) Knowledge generation via Online-Learning Training of young professionals in five CH4LLENGE Universities Implementation Test of innovative institutional cooperation formats and approaches in local pilots of the nine CH4LLENGE cities Take-Up Development of a comprehensive manual on institutional cooperation in SUMP development and implementation
www.sump-challenges.eu Measure selection in CH4LLENGE 8 The development of a range of effective measures (or strategic policy options) to tackle identified transport objectives and problems - often called option generation A long list of possible measures needs to be assessed for appropriateness, resulting in a shortlist of more promising measures. These need to be specified in more detail for application to the city in question and then assessed in more detail. These two stages involve a process of “option appraisal”, which should consider effectiveness, acceptability and value for money. The most promising measures will then be considered for implementation at a later stage in the SUMP process. Limited availability of knowledge of measures, and limited evidence on performance, especially in specific city contexts, is a barrier to effective measure selection
www.sump-challenges.eu Measure selection in CH4LLENGE In collaboration with CH4 partner cities, a list of measures relevant to cities has been developed. CH4 partners have contributed to extensive review of evidence of the performance of these measures, and these reviews are written up in the KonSULT database. Cities can use this information to make informed decisions on measures. These have been used to update the KonSULT database. An option generator, using the evidence on performance of the measures has been further developed. Cities can use the generator to create packages of measures which, based on the available evidence, might contribute to addressing cities transport objectives and problems (www.konsult.leeds.ac.uk). Knowledge on practice has been, and will be, transferred among CH4LLENGE partner cities and follower cities and more widely through activities including a training working, summer schools, online learning and presentations. Partner cities, supported by other partners will consider how measures, and packages of measures would work in their specific city contexts: how does the generic evidence on measures apply given politics, public attitudes, governance, built and natural environment in individual cities.
www.sump-challenges.eu Monitoring and Evaluation in SUMP development Barriers to carry out monitoring and evaluation, include practical using and experiences differs and sometimes only very few experiences with evaluation differing definitions for the indicators to be monitored data available, but not connected to the SUMP and its objectives increasing cost of collection of travel behaviour related data missing monitoring and evaluation strategy, but need of it Promising approaches to improve monitoring and evaluation are providing method/standardised algorithm for a more systematic process towards M&E and cost-effective data collection sharing best practice examples differ between large scale monitoring and evaluation in big cities and smaller scale monitoring and evaluation in smaller cities differ between monitoring and evaluation of small measures (as a more qualitative one) and of bigger measures/ measure packages/ SUMPs (as a more quantitative one). Definition: Monitoring and evaluation need to be built into the plan as essential management tools to keep track of the planning process and measure implementation, but also so that you can learn from the planning experience, understand what works well and less well, and to build the business case and evidence base for the wider application of similar measures in the future.
www.sump-challenges.eu Key steps in monitoring and evaluation 1.Definition of objectives 2.Definition of performance indicators 3.For appraisal (ex-ante evaluation) – Determining a do-minimum base against which to assess the proposal – Predicting the effects of the proposal 4.For evaluation (ex-post evaluation) – Measuring the before conditions – Measuring the after conditions 5.Analysis, interpretation and, if appropriate, assessing value for money
