TRANSfer supporting of MobiliseYourCity initiative

TRANSfer is now supporting the global MobiliseYourCity initiative that supports local governments in developing countries to plan sustainable urban mobility

MobiliseYourCity is a global initiative that will be launched at COP 21. It supports local governments in developing countries to plan sustainable urban mobility in order to develop more inclusive, liveable and economically efficient cities and reduce GHG Emissions.

On September 4, the steering committee of the Lima Paris Action Agenda has selected MYC to be part of the “LPAA initiatives”.

The initiative aims at supporting cities in their efforts to cut at least 50% of their urban transport related CO2 Emissions by 2050 compared to business as usual.

It acts along three workstreams:

  • Development of National Urban¬†Mobility Policies (NUMP) including NAMAs
  • Elaboration of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) at the city level,
  • Establishment of solid financing schemes in order to secure the sustainability of resource allocated to urban mobility.

With CODATU, CEREMA, AFD and GIZ as lead organizations, and with the support from ministries from France and Germany, TRANSfer has been contributing to the conceptual development of initiative since its start in early 2015.
