The Urban Mobility Scorecard (UMS) Tool is a digital instrument for cities to benchmark progress toward sustainable, inclusive mobility developed by the Global New Mobility Coalition of the World Economic Forum. The tool is guided by three fundamental pillars of sustainable mobility: Governance, Resilience, and Connectivity. It comprises seven questionnaire-based assessments to evaluate a cities’ progress on sustainable, inclusive mobility. It also allows the benchmarking of results by an anonymized comparison of cities’ results in the assessment and it provides supporting resources such as case studies and best practices to inspire future action. The questionnaires were tested with three trial cities from different geographical contexts to ensure that the questions in the scorecard tool are suited to a wide range of cities, recognizing different legislative, regulatory and economic powers, as well as the geographical scope of cities.

The Urban Adaptation Support Tool (UAST) assist cities, towns and other local authorities in developing, implementing and monitoring climate change adaptation plans. The UAST was developed as a practical guidance for urban areas, in recognition of their importance in the European economy. The tool outlines six steps needed to develop and implement an adaptation strategy and makes references to valuable guidance materials and tools. Steps are divided into sub-steps with detailed guidance available. The UAST is not intended to produce a tailor-made climate adaptation strategy but rather intends to highlight key issues to be considered when adaptation strategies are developed.
