In its first application in China, the Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) concept supports the city of Foshan in its ambition to further promote low carbon, green, and human-centred mobility.
The SUMP Foshan Pilot Project was conducted in collaboration with the Transport Bureau of Foshan (Foshan TB), the Foshan Public Transportation Management Co. (Foshan TC), the China Sustainable Transportation Center (CSTC), and was supported by Rupprecht Consult. This report follows the development of the SUMP Foshan Pilot Project according to the SUMP process.
For the purpose of the pilot project, the SUMP process was conducted up to Step 9, i.e. from analysis, scenario-building, and visioning, to producing strategic measures at city-level, as well as creating specific measures for implementation at showcase area-level.
Potential follow-up actions at the city level – to be taken after the implementation of the showcase area measures – were also identified. Through capacity development activities conducted in parallel, further Chinese cities have expressed interest and received training in applying SUMP in their own mobility planning.
