Efforts for the Project for Preparing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) within the scope of the Sustainable Cities Project – Component A, financed under the European Union IPA II Grant Agreement and carried out with the technical support of the World Bank and ILBANK, continues with the consultancy of the Konya and Eskişehir Metropolitan Municipalities and EY Kurumsal Finansman Danışmanlık A.Ş.
The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, a strategic plan designed to meet the mobility needs of people and businesses for a better quality of life, will contribute to the vision of making Konya and Eskişehir some of the best cities in the world in terms of sustainable transportation. SUMP will be created with the principles of integration, participation and evaluation in mind.
The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans for Konya and Eskişehir are implemented for, and with the ideas of, the citizens. In line with this, plans were prepared to involve the people of Konya and Eskişehir in the process. It takes about five minutes to fill out the questionnaire published on the project’s website under the slogans, “Take action for Konya!” and “Take action for Eskişehir!” Thus, residents of Konya and Eskişehir are given the opportunity to improve SUMP with their own ideas and contribute to the project in only five minutes.
