SUMP – A Joint Commitment: Towards an overarching institutional coordination and policy development in drafting and implementing SUMPs

September 2019

This paper gives a brief explanation of the benefits a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) could have for cities, as well as explore the possibilities of how the National Level, i.e. Members of the Parliament, could directly or indirectly support and facilitate the implementation of SUMPs in cities.
Initially, an overview of SUMP will be presented, as a favorable alternative to traditional ways of planning for transportation and mobility.
Following, this paper will present an overview of the process of concepting and implementing SUMPs, starting from the very beginning of the inception of SUMPs, all the way to the steps taken after the implementation, mainly monitoring, adjusting and learning the necessary lessons.
In this section, gaps and possibilities for intervening in order to support the process of SUMPs are identified and recommended.
Following, this paper will look at some aspects that SUMPs aim to enhance, and how they could further be supported by interventions and editions to the existing legal framework.
In addition, this paper will make an overview of the Kosovo legislation framework affecting SUMP regarding the drafting and implementing of SUMPs and identify gaps and areas for improvement based on the EU legislation and policies.
Finally, recommendations will be given on how and where in the process of drafting and implementation of SUMPs, members of the parliament could come in with support in legislation or in other forms.
