Indian cities experience severe air pollution, congested streets, and rapid urbanisation. At the same time India moves fast towards the implementation of electric mobility, extension of public transport infrastructure and application of technological advancements. India is committed to achieve the Net Zero emission target by 2070.

India and Germany have been working together for more than 60 years on sustainable urban development projects. To further deepen this cooperation, in 2019 the Government of India and the German Federal Government signed a Joint Declaration of Intent on the Green Urban Mobility Partnership (GUMP). Both countries agreed to collaborate more closely to transform urban transport systems through efficient, people-centric, and low carbon mobility solutions. Germany provides India with concessional loans of 1 billion Euro through KfW Development Bank over a first phase of five years. In addition, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) provides technical cooperation.
