Assessment of Urban Mobility Needs, Gaps and Priorities in Mediterranean Partner Countries

Improving urban mobility and reaching the goal of sustainability is a key priority for the European Union (EU). To this end, substantial efforts have been undertaken in several regions within the European context regarding the investigation and successful implementation of innovative and green urban mobility solutions. The knowledge and experience gained, at the local level, throughout the implementation process of such solutions is of utmost importance and significant added-value when considering their successful transferability in other cities/regions within Europe and beyond. Within the aforementioned context, this paper aims first to present a set of such innovative and green urban mobility solutions, as identified by leading experts within the framework of the EU-funded “SOLUTIONS” research project, and then assess the transferability potential of selected solutions in Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPCs). The identified solutions were clustered into four thematic areas namely public transport, transport infrastructure, city logistics and integrated planning/Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. For each thematic cluster, existing urban mobility needs, gaps and priorities were assessed in three selected MPCs, enabling the identification of common priorities for the Mediterranean region as well as the selection and prioritization of promising urban mobility solutions fitting best the local context of Mediterranean cities thus presenting the largest potential towards meeting sustainability targets.
