Monitoring and evaluation activities deliver data about the progress of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) development process and the impact of policy measures. They are carried out before, during, and after the implementation of transport measures. Providing regular information to decision-makers, potential funding bodies and local stakeholders can help to demonstrate that a SUMP has delivered, or will deliver, benefits to the community, provides value for money, is worth continuing, or requires modifications to be successful. Systematic monitoring and evaluation increase the efficiency of the planning process and the implementation of measures helps to optimize the use of resources and provides empirical evidence for future planning and appraisal of transport measures.
