With 1.2 million euros funding from the German Federal Ministry of Environment (BMU) through the TRANSfer project, our implementing partner GIZ is supporting the Philippines’ Department of Transportation in developing a National Urban Mobility Programme (NUMP), also locally named as the Philippine Urban Mobility Programme (PUMP).
The main purpose of the Philippines NUMP is to:
More precisely, the Philippines NUMP comprises social, environmental and economic objectives :
The Philippine NUMP promotes the reduction of emissions through changes in active transport, public transport, urban freight, travel demand management, and transit oriented development. It builds on the support given to the Jeepney Modernization Program, which promotes the introduction of safer and more environmentally friendly vehicles and the rationalization of services to consolidate franchises, improve operations, and avoid on-street competition.
As the PUMP is being put into action, current activities focus on the collection of sustainable urban mobility data and on service contracts for road-based public transport.
The NUMP has identified and calculated the cost for a number of measures ranging from developing a national walking and cycling policy to modernizing jeepneys in the country. The NUMP is expected to leverage over a billion euros from public and private sectors in investments for vehicle modernisation.
The Philippine Urban Mobility Program will potentially reduce GHG emissions by a total of 15.01–27.13 MtCO2e over 10 years, or a decrease of 5.6–10.1% from BAU. TRANSfer project will be in the Philippines until December 2021. It is expected that the upcoming IKI-funded regional project Urban Act will build on the PUMP framework and outputs.
Since year-2017, when the NUMP started, the programme has completed some outputs as:
The Philippine Urban Mobility Programme – Towards people-first cities empowered by efficient, dignified, and sustainable mobility
The National Urban Mobility Programme for the Philippines
