Transport is responsible for about a quarter of energy-related CO2 emissions worldwide and plays a central role in the reduction of air pollution to reach the targets of the Paris agreement of 2015.
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a leading global Partnership for systemic and transformative urban mobility planning, facilitating investments and linking local action with the global sustainability agenda (Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement).
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is supported by the European Commission, the French Ministry of Ecological Transition (MTE), the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM), and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Construction and Nuclear Safety (BMU), and the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) which are working in collaboration to enable positive global transformation.
Since 2015, the Partnership has gathered a network of 65 member cities and 15 member countries, supported by over 10 Implementing and Knowledge Partners led by AFD and GIZ.
The partnership mainly supports its city and country members 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 trainings, online platforms, peer-to-peer exchanges, and events.
The MobiliseYourCity Secretariat consists of an international team of 6 people of which 4 are financed by AFD, 2 by BMU. The advertised position is financed by the European Commission.
