National Urban Mobility Policies and Investment Programmes in support of Climate Commitments in Latin America and the Caribbean A snapshot by SLOCAT Partnership, EUROCLIMA+ Programme and MobiliseYourCity

Despite most countries having national regulations on transport planning in place, these do not always provide a clear vision for the development of sustainable urban transport, nor fit the particular needs of cities. An analysis carried out by SLOCAT compared the transport content of the commitments expressed by the NDCs and LTSs of seven countries (Barbados, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Peru, Surinam, Uruguay) in the LAC region on the one hand; with the transport content of their national and subnational planning instruments, on the other. 

Several LAC countries have recognised the importance of supporting the work of their cities on urban mobility through adequate national regulatory frameworks and financial instruments. Although not yet widespread, dedicated National Urban Mobility Policies and Investment Programmes (NUMPs) are growing in prominence in the LAC region as effective planning instruments to bridge this gap and enable local governments to enhance urban transport and mobility.
