About the partnership

Empowering cities to improve mobility for their citizens and decarbonise transport to fight the global climate crisis. European Union, France and Germany, working in collaboration to enable positive global transformation.

Our objectives

The MobiliseYourCity Partnership empowers cities to improve mobility and takes local action to fight the climate crisis

  • Enabling transformational changes towards more inclusive, livable, and efficient cities and accomplishing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 11: "Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
  • Reduction of transport-related GHG emissions and meeting Nationally Determined Contributions targets (NDC)
  • Fostering more comprehensive, integrated and participatory urban mobility planning at both local & national levels

  • Identifying large-scale sector investments, and linkage to development finance and EU investment facilities

  • Raising ambitions for urban transformation in beneficiary cities and countries, and foster interactive peer-to-peer exchange

What we stand for?

  1. Raising the ambition level and peer-to-peer dynamics of local governments in sustainable urban mobility through forming coalitions, backed by effective, long-term south-south / north-south partnerships and cooperation measures;

  2. Linking targets: Breaking down NDCs into sector targets and connecting these with “co-benefits” (i.e. goals as described in the New Urban Agenda and SDGs), which are politically most relevant and indispensable for diligent implementation and follow-up particularly at sub-national level;

  3. Robust linkage of integral policy and planning approaches with finance & investment: Due to scarce chances particularly in the transport sector to advance individual investment projects with transformational potential, emphasis is crucial to establish integrated, comprehensive policies and development plans for sector transformation with clear linkage to budgeting and financing concepts for activating transformation.

  • The MobiliseYourCity Partnership supports city and country partners in planning and financing mobility solutions through two main tools: the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) and the National Urban Mobility Plan (NUMP).
  • The MobiliseYourCity Partnership empowers local partners with tools allowing them to act with autonomy.

A Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) is a strategic plan developed in an inclusive and integrated way in order to meet people and businesses mobility needs in cities and to harmonize and integrate existing planning approaches. It set cities on sustainable course regarding land use and urban mobility.


A National Urban Mobility Plan (NUMP) is a strategic policy or programme developed by national governments to enable local governments to tackle urban mobility challenges. It enhances the capabilities of cities to plan, fund & implement sustainable transport projects.

The steering committee is responsible for overall strategic orientation and governance. It runs relationships and linkages with political priorities of the Partnership’s donors and the international relevant agendas. The Steering Committee also deals with the Partnership’s implementations activities in geographically specific support-programs in terms of focus, alignment and consistency.

Both supporting partners and implementing agencies are represented at the steering steering committee meetings held twice a year. Details are specified in the charter of the partnership. The minutes of every steering committee are shared on MobiliseYourCity knowledge platform.
