National Urban Mobility Policies and Investment Programmes (NUMP) Toolkit
Planning and development of sound urban mobility systems is (in most countries) the responsibility of local governments. Nevertheless, many countries all over the world recognise that urban mobility is not merely a local concern; it is of national interest. National Urban Mobility Policies and Investment Programmes (NUMPs) are an opportunity for national governments to effectively enabling cities to tackle urban mobility challenges while achieving national economic, environmental and social objectives. A NUMP development can be a useful process to facilitate a more coordinated approach to urban mobility policy, planning and investment.
– The General Information section is useful to get an overview on NUMP, providing international good practice examples and basic information about the MobiliseYourCity approach to NUMP and might be of general interest to initiate a NUMP process.
– The following sections guide the practitioners and experts through the NUMP development process (Initition, Status Quo Analysis, Vision and Goal Setting, In-depth Elaboration). The toolkit is designed in a way that you can consult the most important elements throughout the process. To strengthen the practical value of the guidelines each of the four phases of the NUMP Cycle has similar elements:
– Terms of Reference and Guidelines
– Good Practice and Knowledge Products
– Tools and Templates
– Transparency/MRV and Financing are cross-cutting topics throughout the development process including activities in each of the four phases of the NUMP Cycle and hence covered in seperate chapters, following the same structure as the four phases.
– Particular attention receives capacity development. In this section, the toolkit provides an overview of trainings and webinars offered, recordings and material of capacitations implemented as well as further reading and training curricula.
The structure of the toolkit is aligned with the NUMP Guideline for Practitioners. Additional information and guidance for the different phases and steps are available on the MobiliseYourCity Partnership’s website (www.mobiliseyourcity.net) and UEMI (www.uemi.net/toolkit.html) websites.
