Abstract/Resumo
There are numerous initiatives at European level which aim to increase the capacity of cities with regard to sustainable mobility planning by developing guidelines and various forms of training materials. An important prerequisite for systematic capacity building is to understand what capacity actually means in the context of mobility planning and which concrete factors influence the ability to shape and deliver sustainable mobility solutions. In the SUITS EU project a tool for capacity assessment was developed and tested with 6 participant cities. Through interviews and workshops with mobility stakeholders of the participating cities, 15 challenges that the cities face while planning and implementing mobility plans were identified which led to the design of a set of 54 indicators that assess the capacity of an authority to develop and implement a mobility plan. The presented methodology allows authorities to self-assess their performance and capacity, unveil the sources of the problems they face and that are impeding their effectiveness in developing and implementing mobility plans. The application to the six participating cities demonstrated that the presented evaluation tool is comprehensive, encompasses all the aspects of the environment in which a LA operates and effectively highlights the areas where interventions are required so that the LAs can systematically increase their capacity.
