WHAT IS SUMPORT ABOUT?
Port cities in the Mediterranean Sea face common challenges due to their social, economic and geographic characteristics, and trends affecting their areas. The MED territory is home to almost a quarter of the European population and its cities are the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. For port cities, it is crucial to plan strategically their mobility system by adopting sustainable and innovative solutions to improve the citizens’ quality of life and contribute to the city’s attractiveness for tourists.
In this context, the project SUMPORT (Sustainable Urban Mobility in MED PORT cities) will increase the planning capacities on sustainable mobility of port cities through sharing of experiences, pilot actions and training activities. Indeed, SUMPORT enables participating port cities to draft or update their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP), as long-term strategy documents for the future development of the city that can effectively address transport issues.
SUMPORT is part of the INTERREG MED Programme.
