In the Sustainable Mobility Project 2.0, WBCSD and 15 of its member companies have developed a global framework to support integrated planning and implementation of urban sustainable mobility relying on a fact-based and collaborative approach. The framework has been tested in 6 cities around the world (Chengdu, Bangkok, Indore, Hamburg, Lisbon and Campinas) over the last 3 years and some of the cities utilized this methodology to develop their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans following the federal requirements (e.g. European and Brazilian SUMPs).
The SMP2.0 process in cities starts with the calculation of 19 sustainable mobility indicators to trigger an objective identification of the city priority areas and lead to an alignment across the various local authorities on their sustainable transport strategy. Based on the local circumstances and the priorities identified, a set of suitable mobility solutions including finance options is developed and several solutions can be trialed in cities for example to encourage behavioral change. The publications issued on Indicators, Financing Mechanisms and Indore City report are online in the Publication column of this page. Our SMP2.0 report “Integrated sustainable mobility in cities-a practical guide” and other city reports will be online very soon.
In 2016, we are communicating the outcomes of the project and defining the processes that will allow spreading the implementation of SMP2.0 methodology and use of the tools across the world.
