1. Context - The MobiliseYourCity Partnership
Launched at COP21 in Paris, the MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a leading global Partnership for sustainable mobility of nearly 100 partners, including 65 city members and 15 country members.
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is supported by the European Commission, the French Ministry of Ecological Transition (MTE), the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) which are working in collaboration to enable positive global transformation.
The Partnership is supported by over 10 Implementing and Knowledge Partners led by AFD and GIZ. Our Implementing Partners are working with cities and countries worldwide to develop scalable solutions to improve mobility in complex environments. MobiliseYourCity supports cities and countries by assisting in the preparation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), National Urban Mobility Policies and Investment Programs (NUMPs) building capacities and engaging regional Communities of Practice through training sessions, online platforms, peer-to-peer exchanges, and events.
The MobiliseYourCity Secretariat consists of an international team of 9 people of which 4 are financed by AFD, 1 by the EU, 3 by BMUV and 1 by BMZ. The advertised position is funded by ADEME (the French Agency for Ecological Transition).
The Climate Adaptation expert will be based in the MobiliseYourCity Secretariat in Brussels and hired through CODATU under Belgian law. CODATU is one of the founding partners of MobiliseYourCity.
