Short description
UIA Expert, Philip Turner, gives a first look on how the project is being implemented

It’s been some months since the CitiCAP project started its implementation and many activities have been carried out. The project has begun to produce knowledge stemming from the implementation of its innovative solution
You can now read the first of a series of journals following the CitiCAP (citizens' cap and trade co-created) project implementation process. In this first edition, find out about the EU, national and local policy and the three key challenges associated with the project.  These are: 
•    How to change the mobility attitude and behaviour of citizens to promote the shift from private car to sustainable mobility?
•    How medium-size cities may develop their mobility environment: increase the use of sustainable mobility modes, enhance the multimodality and decrease CO2 emissions, while they cannot use all mass transit options that are available for larger cities?
•    How the ITS approach can be integrated into the sustainable urban mobility planning and service provision?
It includes information on progress made to date and how the project is overcoming challenges of implementation.
