CAPSUT - Capacity Building on Sustainable Urban Transport
Description/achievement of initiative

Through the webpage " CAPSUT - Capacity Building on Sustainable Urban Transport": as international platform for training activities in the field of urban mobility, the international community of practitioners and decision-makers in the field of mobility will be able to pick up knowledge, trends and developments more quickly and more comprehensively. Further, as a result of this global overview, the development of new and enhancement of existing courses and capacity development efforts will be facilitated. Online courses and direct courses will be offered and announced through this dedicated webpage.

Implementation methodologies

GIZ SUTP establishes its webpage " CAPSUT - Capacity Building on Sustainable Urban Transport": as international platform for training activities in the field of urban mobility. The platform provides an overview on training methodologies, planned training courses (provided by GIZ, SLoCaT partners, other partners and other international actors) and training material. It will help to make training activities by various partners more accessible for the global audience. Further, other international partners will be invited to contribute their knowledge and experiences to the new CAPSUT-initiative. GIZ SUTP is GIZ's umbrella for urban mobility interventions on behalf of BMZ (German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development".
