New Turkish and Romanian translations of the SUMP guidelines now available

By first publishing in English, the 2nd edition of the SUMP Guidelines was made available to cities worldwide in 2019. Meanwhile, many national institutions have been working to translate the SUMP Guidelines into their own language – to make them even easier to use and to establish the concept of SUMPs in their own country.

Turkish version has now been developed by DT Global (an international development organisation) in the framework of a contract with the EU Delegation in Turkey called “Support to IPA II Transport Sector OP Programming and Policy Promotion on Urban Mobility”. This project finished in December 2020. With sustainable mobility and the EuropeanMobilityWeek campaign becoming increasingly important in Turkey, these guidelines will provide the opportunity for easier dissemination of knowledge among Turkish towns and cities. 

Romanian version has also now been developed by ICLEI - Loval Governments for Sustainability ( a global network of more than 1,750 local and regional governments committed to sustainable urban development).

With these fresh releases, Turkish and Romanian decision-makers and planners are encouraged to apply the concept of SUMP and establish integrated planning practices. 

All current and future translations are available to download as documents from the SUMP Guidelines page on Eltis.
