MobiliseYourCity introduced at the COP 22 in Marrakech
On November 11th the German Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit (BMU) and the French Ministère de l’Environnement, de l’Énergie et de la Mer (MEEM) introduced their joint initiative MobiliseYourCity for sustainable urban mobility in emerging and development countries. The initiative is supported by its founding partners the Agence de l’environnement et de la maîtrise de l’énergie (ADEME), Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Centre d’études et d’expertise sur les risques, l’environnement, la mobilité et l’aménagement (CEREMA), Cooperation for urban mobility in the developing world (CODATU) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ). On behalf of the BMUB the GIZ TRANSfer Project supports the initiative MobiliseYourCity (MYC) by implementing sustainable local city transport and the planning process of transport related infrastructures. MYC was launched in December 2015 at COP 21 in Paris as an initiative of the Lima-Paris Action Agenda / Global Climate Action Agenda for an initial period of 5 years (2016-2020).
MYC is designed as a global partnership aiming to foster the development of National Urban Mobility Policies and Programmes (NUMPs) in partner countries and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) in partner cities in emerging and development countries. MYC therefore aims to reduce urban transport related greenhouse gas emissions in 100 partner cities by 25% in 2030 and at least 50% in 2050 compared to business as usual trough the implementation and revision cycle of successive SUMPs in urban areas and at least 20 NUMPs.
