GMT : 02/07| 16:00 - 17:30 Paris : 02/07| 17:00 - 18:30 New Delhi : 02/07| 21:30 - 23:00 Tokyo : 02/08| 01:00 - 02:30 Sydney : 02/08| 03:00 - 04:30

Chair: Ivo Cré, POLIS Network

This session will focus on the topic of Resilient Mobility planning.

First, the authors of the “Planning for More Resilient and Robust Urban Mobility” SUMP Topic Guide will set the tone of the session – Susanne Boehler-Baedeker and Morgane Juliat (Rupprecht Consult) will introduce the concept of urban mobility resilience and present the 7 principles of resilience while Laura Babío (POLIS) will present a toolbox of measures to help cities to increase their resilience.

Francesco Ripa (UCL), dissemination manager of the MORE project will focus on how reallocating road space considering the needs of current and future road users can make cities more resilient. The presentation will draw on both the theoretical work developed during the project and the application of the MORE tools and concepts in five European cities: London, Lisbon, Constan?a, Malmö and Budapest.

Given the ongoing transformations in urban transport and the uncertainties associated to the post-pandemic mobility, the usage of new technologies and data sources are crucial for ensuring a resilient planning and management of urban mobility. In his presentation, Javier Burrieza (Nommon) from the MOMENTUM project will look at how we can combine these new sources to monitor and predict bike sharing demand in the city of Madrid, looking at the impact of COVID-19 in the role of this shared mobility service in the city.
