The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a leading global Partnership for systemic and transformative urban mobility planning, facilitating investments and linking local action with the global sustainability agenda (Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement).
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is supported by the European Commission, the French Ministry for the Ecological and Solidary Transition (MTES), the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM), and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Construction and Nuclear Safety (BMU), which are working in collaboration to enable positive global transformation.
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is pursuing the decarbonisation of transport to fight the global climate crisis as main objective. To reach this goal, the Partnership is collectively working to empower cities, by giving them the methodologies and tools to improve mobility allowing them to create happier, safer, and sustainable urban spaces.
Since 2015 Partnership has gathered a network of 61 partner cities and 13 partner countries, which are being supported by 10 implementing and knowledge partners led by AFD and GIZ. City and country partners are supported through two main planning and project preparation tools: National Urban Mobility Policies and/or Programs (NUMP) and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP), which serve as the basis for the promotion of investments and development of attractive mobility services. The Partnership also MobiliseYourCity acts as a platform for financing by connecting international and bilateral technical & financial agencies with cities and countries across the world that have ambitious goals to decarbonise and improve their urban transport. The ambition of the partnership is to work with 100 cities and 20 countries.
Since February 2017, the MobiliseYourCity Secretariat works in Brussels to coordinate the Partnership’s activities, including communication, monitoring and reporting, partnership management, fundraising and consolidating technical expertise. The secretariat also organizes biannual Steering Committee meetings, which brings together all the partners and decides on the main orientations of the Partnership.
The secretariat is designed as a team of 6 person.
CODATU was born out of the World Conference on Urban Transport, held in Dakar, Senegal, in 1980. Its objective is to promote sustainable urban mobility in developing cities through international exchanges between the various actors in the transport and urban mobility sector: public authorities, companies, research institutes and urban transport professionals.
In addition to international conferences organized every two years, CODATU provides technical assistance (currently with staff in Peru, Brazil, Senegal, Tunisia, Egypt, India), training for current or future decision-makers (Master II of Lomé and Rabat), publishes books on topics related to urban mobility in developing countries, and participates in the Brussels secretariat of the MobiliseYourCity programme.
