With 0.7 million euros funding from the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), our implementing partners GIZ, AFD, Codatu and Cerema are supporting the Tunisian Ministry of Transport in developing a National Urban Mobility Policy (NUMP).
The Ministry of Transport was assisted in the elaboration of the National Urban Mobility Policy and of a NAMA Transport. Particular attention was given to:
- Governance and financial mechanisms;
- Public transport restructuring;
- Sustainable urban mobility;
- Establishment of a GHG inventory and projections based on and international MRV methodology;
- Capacity development.
The NUMP has identified and calculated the cost for a number of measures ranging from the creation of structures at the local scale for urban mobility planning and management to capacity building for the managerial staff. Among other results, the Tunisian NUMP is expected to decrease the number of road accidents by 80% and will potentially reduce GHG emissions by a total of -3 300 000 tCO2 eq over ten years.
