What is the Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning Guide?

The goal of this initiative is to provide Subnational Governments with tools to incorporate mobility into their urban planning processes. This document seeks to strengthen coherence and convergence between land use planning, transportation and climate change policies, with adequate coordination within existing structures, planning tools and strategies.

The guide is developed in conjunction with the National Territorial Planning Division (DINOT-MVOT) and with the NUMP Uruguay Project (Euroclima + / GIZ, implemented in MA, MEF, MIEM, MTOP, MVOT), whose objective is to lay the foundations for a National Sustainable Urban Mobility Policy.

It also explains the criteria and stages for a SUMP (Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan), along with an infrastructure design guide for sustainable mobility.
