Sustainable mobility is key to reaching multiple development goals: we all need transport to reach work, schools and hospitals. Sustainable mobility ensures clean air and helps mitigate the impacts of climate change. It is thus essential for externalising the EU Green Deal, particularly on urban areas. Transport accounts for a significant share of GHG emissions but only receives 3% of climate financing. Beyond the climate challenges, sustainable transport enhances local efforts in the sectors of education, health, jobs. Collaborative action is needed to realize the full potential of sustainable mobility.
Since 2016, MobiliseYourCity has empowered cities all over the world to improve mobility for their citizens and decarbonise transport to fight the global climate crisis. Partners have combined their unique strengths to support cities in developing sustainable urban mobility plans, identifying solid and financially sustainable investment opportunities and accessing development finance and EU investment facilities. In this session, we plan to provide insights on how MobiliseYourCity and its 13 institutional partners are scaling European approaches to sustainable urban mobility planning worldwide. The session will cover an introduction into the work of the partnership and adress the questions of how sustainable urban mobility plans can help to prioritise investment decisions and identify opportunities to implement measures in accordance with the EU Green Deal.
