Plan de Movilidad de Antofagasta concluye fase de diagnóstico con taller virtual (2)

The Diagnostic Workshop generated a multi-sectoral discussion on the challenges of mobility planning in the city.

 Antofagasta, Chile, July 13, 2020. - The project Plan for Strengthening Sustainable Mobility in the city of Antofagasta concluded its analysis and diagnosis phase with the closing of the "Diagnostic Workshop for Sustainable Urban Mobility in Antofagasta", which was held virtually on June 11, 2020. This generated a multi-sector discussion about the gaps and challenges of mobility planning in the Chilean city.

The event was organised under the framework of the EUROCLIMA+ programme with the participation of the institutions involved in the project that comprise the Technical RoundTable for the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) of Antofagasta: Regional Government of Antofagasta, CREO Antofagasta, Programme of roadways and urban transport (SECTRA) North of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications of Chile, Ministerial Regional Secretariat (SEREMI) for Housing and Urbanism, SEREMI for the Environment and SEREMI for Women and Gender, among others.

The main results of the baseline survey, carried out by the consulting firm Cityplanning (Chile) and of the mobility self-assessment tools applied in the city, provided by Ruprrecht Consult (Germany), were presented. With this information, the project has a detailed analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats in Antofagasta’s current urban mobility situation.

After the presentation by the consultants and the round of questions, an exchange process was carried out among the different sectors to agree on the respective strengths and weaknesses in mobility planning: the lack of a gender perspective, the need to incorporate greater sustainability criteria, and the strengthening of the monitoring and evaluation processes of the actions once they are implemented.

This EUROCLIMA+ project aims to update Antofagasta's Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP), which will bring together all the city's existing initiatives and plans, as well as incorporating new initiatives, giving them a common vision and objectives for more sustainable mobility focused on people's well-being.

After the end of this second phase, the next steps will be to define, together with the citizens and the public and the private sectors, the main development scenarios and objectives that will govern the SUMP. Similarly, indicators and targets will be developed to monitor their implementation.

As a complement to the Diagnostic Workshop, an online survey will soon be launched so that Antofagasta's citizens can share their impressions and concerns about mobility in their region.
