The first e-course focuses on the phase preparation & analysis of the SUMP cycle. It gives advice how to initiate the SUMP process. Before elaborating a SUMP strategy and selecting the right measures it is important to understand the local, regional and national framework influencing the SUMP preparation and implementation as well as to analyse the current mobility situation and planning practices.
The course suggests how to define a project management set-up and evaluate planning practices, capacities and resources that are needed for the SUMP development. To know where you want to go and how you're going to get there, you first need to know where you currently are standing. The course also introduces important steps in the SUMP cycle – collection and processing of mobility data and analysis of the current mobility situation. This provides a basis for rational and transparent SUMP strategy development and measure selection.
