Competencies for Collaborative Planning
Creating sustainable transport systems does not only require integrative concepts on the tuning of transport and land use. Sustainability also requires forms of collaboration between engineers and planners. Professionals that mostly base their work on the core knowledge of their field can have trouble with such approaches of their job. This article describes the preliminary outcomes of a project that aims at inducing collaboration, through education and training. The project is initiated by the Dutch National Platform for Local Governments on Traffic and Transport (KpVV).
The project focuses on the competencies needed for an effective collaboration between transport engineers and physical planners. The project discusses the course of some successful planning processes and analyses the factors that led to success. The outcome of the analysis will be translated into an advice on the renewal of education and training. The advice is not only directed to the universities and the academies. It also addresses the planning bureaus and the consultancy firms. The way in which new functionaries are integrated into the organisations and the procedures along which the planning projects and the transport projects are created have great influence on the outcomes of the projects as well.
