Nowadays, city local governments focus their strategic vision on the development of the urban sustainability. For this, they develop drivers, strategies, structures on green local improvements. To be sustainable, cities reinforce actions and plans on resource management, mobility, climate, building and public spaces. In order to be sustainable and smart, challenges are set to ensure successful implementation of sustainable mobility strategies through the development of appropriate policies, actions, decisions and controls. The development of sustainable mobility strategy requires the involvement of strategic actors, infrastructures, funding and socio-demographic parameters. To ensure this, sustainable mobility strategy has to be strengthen by an efficient management control system and a real measurement of institutional factors’ risk. The development of mobility controls ensures homogeneity between behaviours, decisions, objectives and strategies for mobility issues. In order to make the link between control, strategy and sustainability, new researches propose new frameworks and systems. These frameworks reinforce the strategic contribution of values, rules, monitoring and enhancing awareness and interactions. Based on that, the management control framework of Malmi and Brown is more and more associated with the implementation of sustainable strategies. This paper explores the development of sustainable mobility strategies in two Belgian cities (Namur and Leuven). To analyse how cilty local governments implement, control and develop mobility strategies and plans, this paper refers to Malmi and Brown’s model. The research proposes two hypotheses that set the importance of the integration of an adequate sustainable mobility control system and the institutional factors on the design and the use of mobility strategy control. This paper proposes a new conceptual model to support the development of sustainable mobility strategy. For this, the choice of two Belgian cities is made according to similarities (population size, explicit will to develop sustainable mobility strategy, focus on sustainable transport, initiation period of mobility issues’ implementation, number of person in charge of mobility, level of willingness to develop mobility system, focus on car free and strategic mobility challenges) and differences (region, language, regulative factors, normative factors and cognitive factors). To test our conceptual framework, an explorative qualitative case study is done in these two Belgian city local governments. The data collection requires a fieldwork of 12 weeks, 54 internal and external documents, and 20 semi-structured interviews (mobility managers, politicians, sustainability managers, policemen and administrative workers). Results shows differences between the implementation and development of Namur and Leuven. Leuven has an average quality of sustainable mobility control system. Leuven requires developing new adapted indicators to face new city challenges and more effective collaborations between involved departments and actors. The case of Namur shows that its sustainable mobility control system is weak because of the non-adapted indicators to strategy and the weakness of the formal structure of mobility strategy. Results identify different institutional factors that have a significant impact on the development of sustainable mobility strategy; the most relevant are formal regulations, political power, local cultures, support of direct and indirect actors and the sensitiveness on sustainable culture. The proposed conceptual model also highlights if the impact of mobility strategy controls and institutional influences have a weak, medium or strong impact on the development of mobility strategy. Results validate our proposed conceptual model. However, this model has to be tested on other sustainability issues (energy, green building, green housing, green and neutral climate), cities and regions. [less ▲]

Purpose This study aims at exploring the current development of management control practice in support of local government mobility strategy. More specifically, we use institutional theory as our theoretical lens to analyze how social institutional pressures and structures (such as regulation, culture or norms) have influenced (either enabled or constrained) the development of management controls for mobility in local government. Research method An exploratory case study method was applied for the purpose of this study. The package of mobility controls developed by local governments in Belgium is explored with reference to the model proposed by Malmi and Brown (2008). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with senior manager(s) responsible for mobility issues and secondary data were collected in two local governments in Belgium. Findings The research shows that the package of mobility controls is still underdeveloped in Belgian local governments. There are significant diversities between the two regions (Wallonia and Flanders) in terms of implementation, execution and development of mobility controls. Although regulatory, cultural and social normative influences are either enabling or constraining the development of mobility controls, local cultural support and mobility actors’ collaboration appear to be the most important institutional factors for mobility development. Contribution/implication Prior studies suggest that management controls play a key role in strategy implementation and formulation. While the public sector such as local government organisations are encouraged to use sustainability management accounting and control tools, understanding of their management control practices and the inherent difficulties in operationalizing EMCS remains limited. A timely exploration of institutional enablers/ constraints and similarities/differences of Flemish and Walloon mobility controls contributes to our understanding of EMCS issues in practice. It also provides policy implications for future improvement of EMCS development. [less ▲]

This presentation proposes to explore the stakeholders’ dynamics in Belgium thanks to a multiple-case study. The research conducted is thus qualitative in nature: eleven “Smart City” projects were studied in Belgium. The goal is to highlight problematics inside the interplay and communication between stakeholders of Smart City projects and to furnish concrete practical recommendations for key stakeholders in smart city initiatives (local governments, multinational/local businesses, citizens, etc.). Even if the 11 projects are very different in their nature, the research proposes some keys scientific findings regarding stakeholders’ dynamics in this kind of projects. [less ▲]
