    • Online Course "Measure selection for sustainable urban mobility planning"

      Development of effective measures to tackle identified transport and mobility objectives is vital for successful sustainable urban mobility planning. Yet there are a range of challenges to well-informed development of packages of measures. Cities can limit themselves to pre-conceived solutions, may focus on supply-side rather than demand-side polices, and can be unaware of the potential of novel solutions. This course explores measure selection in the SUMP process, examining how measures and measure packages can be identified and critically evaluated as a response to objectives, problems, and as part of a process of moving towards more sustainable mobility practices.

      This course has eight units (each consisting of one or several modules):
      • Unit 1: Introduction
      • Unit 2: Background and context
      • Unit 3: Motivations for measure selection
      • Unit 4: Assessing the evidence
      • Unit 5: Policy and politics
      • Unit 6: Approaches to measure selection
      • Unit 7: Case Study
      • Unit 8: Conclusion

      Important: You do not need to complete the course all at once.
