About MobiliseYourCity India

Goals of MYC program in India

MYC is providing assistance in India at two levels:

  • at national level, MYC is assisting the Govt. of India (GoI), through the MoHUA (Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs), in improving their sustainable urban transport policy;
  • at local level, MYC is providing support to three pilot cities - Nagpur, Kochi and Ahmedabad - in their efforts to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions of urban transport sector by elaborating and implementing sustainable urban mobility plans.

MYC program in India is funded by the European Union and its implementation is supported by the Agence Française de Développement.

MYC program in India seeks to achieve the following goals:

  • A better ownership for local stakeholders of urban transport planning tools, through participatory processes for SUMP formulation;
  • SUMP operationalization, by adding notable investment and action plan to the planning document, and preparing a prefeasibility study of urban transport priority projects identified;
  • Building capacities among urban local bodies and equipping the municipalities for an effective implementation and monitoring of the plans formulated and related positive outcomes in the city: equipment to measure air pollution, localize city buses, count vehicles, etc.;
  • Linking urban transport policies to GHG emissions reduction as part of the climate change mitigation agenda.
