Better Regulation & Better Funding

Many legislative and finance hindrances appeared during the SUMP process. Removing them is one of our important goals.

Better Regulation

New Czech Platform Parnership for Urban Mobility focuses on a more effective and coherent implementation of existing policies, legislation and instruments. Drawing on the general principles of better regulation, legislation should be designed so that it achieves the objectives at minimum cost without imposing unnecessary legislative burdens. In this sense the Czech Platform Parnership for Urban Mobility will contribute to the Better Regulation Agenda. The Czech Platform Parnership for Urban Mobility will be regarded as an informal contribution to the design of future and revision of existing regulation, in order for it to better reflect urban needs, practices and responsibilities. It recognises the need to avoid potential bottlenecks and minimise administrative burdens for Urban Authorities.

 

Better Funding

New Czech Platform Parnership for Urban Mobility focuses will contribute to identifying, supporting, integrating and improving traditional, innovative and user-friendly sources of funding for Urban Areas at the relevant institutional level, including from European structural and investment funds (ESIF) (in accordance with the legal and institutional structures already in place) in view of achieving effective implementation of interventions in Urban Areas. The Czech Platform Parnership for Urban Mobility focuses will not create new or increased funding aimed at higher allocations for Urban Authorities. However, it will draw from and convey lessons learned on how to improve funding opportunities for Urban Authorities across all policies and instruments.
