Component 1 A

Component 1: National Capacity Development initiatives

Under the umbrella of the NUTP and JnNURM initiatives, urban transport has received considerable attention since 2006. However, it has been recognised that limited institutional and human capacity in urban transport at both national and local levels is a major constraint. In order to overcome this situation SUTP aims at improving the capacities of the government officials and decision makers in the urban transport sector to appreciate urban transport in all its dimensions and develop the skills for undertaking urban transport planning and management in a holistic and comprehensive manner. Capacity building is being done under two components 1A & 1B:

This component aims to equip the Transport Professionals with knowledge of integrated strategic planning and Management process.

The LUTP program equips transport professionals with knowledge of integrated strategic planning and transport management. The program objectives are to build urban transport leadership that:

  • Understands the complexities of urban transport problems and possible context-sensitive solutions.
  • Recognizes the need for integrated mobility planning, what this planning involves, and how it should be undertaken.
  • Uses lessons learned from cities and cases for better decision making.

The program is aimed at Capacity Building in a holistic and comprehensive manner through a rigorous exposure of the identified leaders to concepts of sustainable transport, self-study and expert guidance from Mentors and the faculties at institutes and centres of excellence viz. Korea Transport Institute (KOTI), Seoul, LTA Academy, Singapore and UITP, Dubai and the Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology University (CEPT), Ahmedabad. The LUTP is fully funded by the World Bank through GEF grant.

There are two programs under this, one for a short duration (7-8 days) and other for a long duration (6-8 months or more). The short duration program held in Seoul, Dubai, Singapore is aimed at training high level officials whereas CEPT had the aim of training middle level and senior officials.

First LUTP was conducted in Singapore from January 15th to 21st, 2012, jointly by MoUD, World Bank and Land Transport Authority Academy of Singapore. The event succeeded in creating awareness of what integrated mobility planning involved, its different components and how it must be undertaken. It also helped participants develop in a structured way, in decision making that considers the complexities of urban transport. The program used a "hands on" learning approach that made an extensive use of case studies, group exercises, and site visits to highlight the linkages among the different components of the urban transport system.

The seven-day workshop sponsored by the local partnering institution, preceded by a self-learning phase which involves about 24 hours of self-paced learning on topics ranging from land use and transport planning to environmental and social issues in urban transport planning ensures wider exposure to ideas and exchange of views at international fora.
