Mobility #1

investment priority in order to improve attractiveness of cities with up to € 829B by 2050

A solution: MobiliseYourCity!

MobiliseYourCity supports local and national governments in developing and emerging countries to plan sustainable urban mobility in order to develop more inclusive, liveable and economically efficient cities and reduce GHG emissions.

MobiliseYourCity aims to assist cities in their efforts to cut at least 50% of their urban transport-related emissions by 2050 compared to business as usual. With the support of a coalition of international partners (development agencies, urban and transport planning agencies, NGOs and development banks), MobiliseYourCity provides a methodological framework, capacity building and technical assistance, and facilitates access to financing at both local and national levels.


  • At least 100 cities commit to elaborate and implement a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan by 2020
  • Cities involved commit to 50 to 75% reduction in urban transport-related GHG emissions by 2050
  • At least 20 developing or emerging countries commit to elaborate and implement a National Urban Mobility Policy (NUMP) that includes institutional strengthening and robust financing schemes to promote sustainable urban mobility
