Learn how to develop a SUMP

BUMP's international partnership has developed a common training programme, adapted at a national level by partners to suit specific national requirements and features.

Click on the links provided here on the right to download the ‘Integrated support package for the production of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs)‘ leading the reader through the training program and providing details on individual issues and a full set of training materials.

Participation was reserved to local authorities with a population ranging from 40,000 and 350,000. All training services were provided free of charge to the local authorities selected as beneficiaries through a public call. Local authorities then appointed their representatives as participants in project activities among their planners, environmental and technical officers.
After the in-class training, participants were involved in mutual learning sessions to share know-how and expertise. The most committed local authorities were then selected for the development of SUMPs, benefitting from professional, multi-disciplinary help and advice provided by a team of experts appointed by each national partner.

Note: all materials and information available in the BUMP website may be downloaded and freely used, provided that project, source and authors are cited. 




Supporting package

The BUMP Supporting Package is the basis for the training programme that has been delivered through six modules on the SUMP process.

It clearly  points out which are the learning objectives, presents a detailed training schedule and explains participatory and integrated methods for the training groups.

The document contains links to supporting materials and recommended tools to evaluate the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) process.

The logical structure of the training course was developed with the following key issues in mind:

  • Introducing the SUMP cycle as per the SUMP guidelines
  • Supporting participants to develop their own SUMP
  • Getting participants into action.
