Sustainable mobility planning at regional and local level constitutes an integrated approach to transport planning and is well established in Slovenia. Sustainable urban mobility plans are strategic documents which outline municipalities´ objectives in the field of sustainable mobility and include lists of necessary actions which help achieving a comprehensive change. Nowadays, more and more municipalities have such plans which are the prerequisite for receiving EU and national funds for transport infrastructure projects. The Ministry of Environment, Climate and Energy co-finances the compilation and update of these plans. This is carried out at the beginning of the MFF as one of the first public tenders in order to ensure that following investment contribute to sustainability objectives.
