Cities and urban areas are a particular focal area for action to promote low carbon, resource-efficient transport. Most journeys begin and end in cities. Cities, towns and suburbs provide home to almost three quarters (72.4%) of the EU-28’s population and account for some 85% of the Union's GDP.

A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) fosters a balanced development of all relevant transport modes, while encouraging a shift towards more sustainable ones.

SUMPs have gained considerable momentum in recent years as the planning concept to address the transport-related challenges and problems of urban areas.

The experts of the Interreg Europe Low Carbon Economy Policy Learning Platform have prepared a Policy Brief highlighting SUMP as a modern planning concept to promote low carbon urban mobility.
