• What is the MobiliseYourCity Partnership?

The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a global and inclusive network of cities and countries as well as an umbrella brand of European development cooperation particularly related to the field of sustainable urban transport. The Partnership aims at assisting beneficiary partners – i.e. national and local governments – in their preparation of National Urban Mobility Policies and Investment Programs (NUMPs) and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). It facilitates the establishment of framework conditions for effective investment and sustainable development of urban transport infrastructure & services as well as regulatory soft measures.

Furthermore, the MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a global climate partnership for integrated urban mobility planning in emerging, developing and EU neighborhood countries, and an international transport alliance under the UN Marrakesh Partnership for Global Climate Action. It is a multi-donor action, jointly co-financed by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO), the French Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity (MTES), the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM), and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The Partnership is implemented jointly by its implementing partners ADEME, AFD, CEREMA, CODATU, EBRD, GIZ, KfW, and WUPPERTAL INSTITUTE. Besides contribution to the international climate process, it contributes to the UN’s Agenda 2030, specifically Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

What are its objectives?

The MobiliseYourCity Partnership has been designed as a global partnership to tackle transport related challenges and achieve the following objectives:

  • Accelerate implementation of sustainable urban mobility through better planning

  • Improve economic competitiveness and liveability in cities worldwide by developing a more urban mobility for people and goods

  • Improve urban mobility systems to deliver positive results in terms of climate change mitigation and poverty alleviation

  • Reduce transport related GHG emissions in cities involved in the partnership by at least 50% by 2050

  • Strengthen inclusive and participatory urban mobility planning and related policies at local and national levels

  • Cooperate with other cities, donors, and further stakeholders and support interactive exchange among each other

  • Support our partners to accomplish:

    • Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs): MobiliseYourCity was launched at COP21, and is part of the UNFCCC´s Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action (MP-GCA).

    • Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): MobiliseYourCity Partnership contributes to the New Urban Agenda and UN’s 2030 Agenda, specifically related to SDG 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

The challenge of mitigation in urban mobility

Without an ambitious transition towards low carbon transport, emissions in developing urban areas will be multiplied by 3 by 2050.

This trend can be reversed: adopting and implementing sustainable urban mobility policies has the potential to cut global urban passenger transport CO2 emissions by almost 40% by 2050 (see table on the right).

In addition, mobility is perceived as the number one investment priority in order to improve attractiveness of cities, and investments in urban mobility are expected to grow by a factor of 2.5 to reach €829 billion annually worldwide in 2050 (Arthur D. Little, The Future of Urban Mobility 2.0). This massive amount of money is a great chance to achieve the transition. However if it is devoted to supporting car-oriented mobility, GHG emissions and other negative externalities will grow drastically.

For these reasons, it is crucial and urgent to develop and implement low carbon transport policies in urban areas to achieve the following three main objectives:

  • Reduce the number of urban trips by conventionally fuelled transport for both passengers and goods through land use and transport planning integration;
  • Promote a modal shift towards active modes and public transport, as well as a structural change in vehicle use;
  • Improve vehicle energy efficiency, in particular through the acceleration of significant technological advances, and also through regulation (roadworthiness, emission and gas standards, etc.).

Transport and GHG emissions

  • The transport sector produced 6.7 GtCO2 in 2010 and was responsible for approximately 23% of total energy-related CO2 emissions.
  • Between 2000 and 2050, transport sector related GHG emissions are projected to increase by 140%, with a very large share of that increase coming from developing countries (nearly 90%).
  • Urban transport accounts for nearly half of these emissions. Due to urbanisation trends in developing countries, two thirds of the world population will live in cities in 2050. CO2 emissions from daily mobility of persons and goods are expected to double by 2050.
  • Research shows that scenarios that give priority to urban transport and active modes are by far more affordable and sustainable than current car-dominated scenarios.

Better air quality

1 million premature deaths per year in urban areas around the world, between 2 and 5% of a country’s annual GDP

MYC pictos orange-congestion

Reduce traffic congestion

Traffic congestion costs US$ 570,000 per day in Nairobi, Kenya, i.e. more than US$ 200 million per year

 

Reduce road fatalities

1.24 million deaths on roads per year worldwide. Estimated cost US$ 518 billion, 1 to 3% of a country’s annual GDP

MYC pictos vert-arbreMore inclusive and liveable cities

Promoting public transport and non-motorised transport could help save US$ 100 trillion worldwide between now and 2050 and cut emissions by 40% in 2050

 

MYC pictos violet-dollarEconomic efficiency

Comprehensive mobility planning facilitates an optimised use of capital in relevant projects, and enhances the economic competitiveness of cities by improving logistics and access to jobs, basic services, education, etc…

The solution

At the local level

Support local decision-makers in implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan or revise it for improvement

At the national level

Support policy-makers in framing a Sustainable Urban Transport Policy

Operational structure of the Partnership

3 main workstreams:

  • Strengthening cities in their ambition to developing sustainable urban transport by implementing National Urban Mobility Policies (NUMP) including development of NAMAs
  • Taking consolidated action at local level by developing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP)
  • Establish solid financing schemes in order to secure the sustainability of resources allocated to urban mobility
