CIVITAS SUMPs-Up reviews, strengthens and integrates existing SUMP resources, designing a support system to assist cities to develop high quality SUMPs. The objective is to accelerate the development of 100 SUMPs, to reach out to 600 cities and to engage about 80% of the EU-cities above 50,000 inhabitants. SUMPs-Up analyses specific take-up needs in local authorities and identifies the most effective tools for SUMP development, which will be integrated into a SUMP Tool Inventory. The project supports cities in designing and packaging SUMP policies and measures and fosters knowledge-transfer and peer-to-peer exchange on SUMP development and implementation. This is enriched with experiences from the city partners who are testing innovative solutions in SUMP preparation and implementation. SUMPs-Up also addresses national governments and multipliers and encourages them to develop facilitating structures for SUMP.This course is offered to the selected group of cities named Expert Group SLP1 between September 2017 - March 2018 in the framework of the CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project. The e-course is divided in three lessons that are part of the three SLP1 learning blocks: Diagnosis, Visioning and Adapting. Each lesson will stay open for three weeks. In this time, the SLP1 group of cities are encouraged to take the course and the tasks related to it.
