Only five years after being launched at COP21 in Paris in 2015, the MobiliseYourCity Partnership has established itself as the leading global Partnership of nearly 100 partners for sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMPS and NUMPS), policy development, and increasing investment for sustainable transport in developing and emerging economies.
Today, the Partnership has more than 60 partner cities with a combined population of over 75 million people in 32 countries, and we have 14 partner countries.
Thanks to the generous contributions of the European Union, the French Ministry for the Ecological Transition (MTE), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU), and the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), as of February 2020, our implementing partners have raised 36 million euros in grants to support our partner cities and countries in advancing sustainable urban mobility planning and project development.
Our main implementing partners, the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), are supporting 42 cities and 13 countries with technical assistance globally to develop scalable solutions to improve mobility in complex environments.
The completion of initial 8 SUMPs and 3 NUMPs in 2019 has helped mobilise an additional 811 million euros for concrete sustainable mobility projects in our partner cities and countries. With this investment we expect an additional 6 million people to have improved access to public, low-carbon transportation services.
The Partnership was founded by Agence de l’Environnement et de la Maitrise de l’Energie (ADEME), Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Coopération pour le Développement et l’Amélioration des Transport Urbains et Périurbains (CODATU), Centre d’études et d’expertise sur les risques, l’environnement, la mobilité et l’aménagement (Cerema) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. We are an international transport initiative under the UN Marrakesh Partnership for Global Climate Action.
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership aims to empowers 100 cities and 20 countries to improve urban mobility for their citizens and decarbonise transport to fight the global climate crisis.
Close the investment gap for sustainable mobility. Although the Transport sector accounts for 25% of GHG emissions, it only receives 3% of climate financing. The MobiliseYourCity Partnership advocates for increased resources and action to support cities to decarbonise urban transport.
By assisting cities and countries in the planning and implementation of effective measures to decarbonize urban transport, the Partnership supports the goals set forth under the UNFCCC dialogue and many urban-related goals specified in the New Urban Agenda as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, we contribute to the following goals:
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership supports member cities and countries through 3 main service areas :
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership empowers cities to improve urban mobility for their citizens and decarbonise transport to fight the global climate crisis. We follow the enable-avoid-shift-and improve approach (EASI), which puts people's need for connection and access at the forefront of sustainable mobility planning.
Concretely, we offer technical assistance for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) and National Policies and Programmes (NUMP): Our Implementing Organizations, like the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), are working with cities and countries all over the world to prepare implementation ready mobility plans and finance ready projects to improve mobility in complex environments. They support national member countries to develop NUMPs and member cities develop SUMPs.
A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) is a strategic plan developed in an inclusive and integrated way in order to meet people and businesses mobility needs in cities and to harmonize and integrate existing planning approaches. It set cities on sustainable course regarding land use and urban mobility.
National Urban Mobility Policy or Investment Programme is a strategic, action-oriented framework for urban mobility, developed by national governments, enacted to enhance the capability of cities to plan, finance and implement projects and measures designed to fulfil the mobility needs of people and businesses in cities and their surroundings in a sustainable manner.
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership builds on the expertise from all its partners to develop tools and methodologies that are then tested on the ground and consistently improved based on feedback. Browse some of our key resources to accompany you on your journey to sustainable development:
70 cities and 15 national governments are members of the Partnership.
MobiliseYourCity reaches out to more than 30 countries across the globe.
Supporting partners aim at developing sustainable urban mobility worldwide with a financial contribution to interventions and activities implemented under the MobiliseYourCity Partnership.
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership extends the reach of knowledge partners, by making the link between with both international and local actors.
The steering committee is responsible for overall strategic orientation and governance. It runs relationships and linkages with political priorities of the Partnership’s donors and the international relevant agendas. The Steering Committee also deals with the Partnership’s implementations activities in geographically specific support-programs in terms of focus, alignment and consistency.
Both supporting partners and implementing agencies are represented at the steering steering committee meetings held twice a year. Details are specified in the charter of the partnership. The minutes of every steering committee are shared on MobiliseYourCity knowledge platform.
