Results of the Implementation Process Evaluation of CIVITAS II Funded Measures for Sustainable Urban Transport

The European Union (EU) funded CIVITAS Initiative concerns ambitious cities that are introducing sustainable urban transport policy strategies. Within CIVITAS II, 208 measures spread over 17 cities were co-funded as part of this programme. The aim is to achieve a significant change in the modal split towards sustainable transport modes. The project CIVITAS-GUARD has been established as the Specific Support Action for CIVITAS II to efficiently and professionally plan, realize, manage and control the following activities: Independent overall cross-site evaluation of the measures taken by the CIVITAS II cities including monitoring and analysis of the implementation process. This paper will be dealing with the implementation process and its relation to measuring success to discover factors of success and risks of failure. The data for this analysis were generated mainly through a standardised online questionnaire that responsible persons filled in during the 4 years of the CIVITAS II project life time. Additionally data were added from external statistical databases. Six different aspects influencing the success of a measure implementation and meeting the objectives successfully were distinguished in the analysis. The external measure background (size of the city, economic background, existing traffic situation etc.), the measure type (supporting or restricting specific modes, complexity, sensibility, etc.), the internal measure framework (target size and population, resources available and from where, etc.), the organisations and stakeholders involved in the implementation strategy and finally barriers and drivers that occurred during the implementation phase. Based on the structure of influencing variable types above, several results of the bivariate correlation analysis could be identified and will be discussed in this paper.
