The National Guidelines on Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) takes a fresh, forward-looking approach for a relatively new field of action by municipalities and their partners in Kosovo.
Taking into account existing guidance from the European Union and our real experiences from implementing SUMPs in Mitrovica South Municipality and Mitrovica North Municipality, the aim of this publication is to provide guidance on developing sustainable urban transportation systems. Why is this important for Kosovo? Sustainable urban mobility planning can improve the quality of life, social equity, transport accessibility, intermodal integration, economic viability, urban attractiveness, sustainability and environmental quality by ensuring that all people, businesses and other affected parties are involved and benefit from this process. The implementation of a SUMP would improve and harmonize the needs of all traffic participants for free and safe movement while enhancing citizens living comfort and ensuring a better quality of life. It presents a strategy for efficient movement of people and transportation of goods and potential sources of funding towards the implementation of mobility investments by considering social, environmental and economic connectivity dimensions.
