Cities and Climate Change (CiClim)

Integrating climate-friendly urban and mobility planning

The Cities and Climate Change (CiClim) project provides technical advice and strategic support for sustainable urban and mobility development in Mexico. In order to achieve this, it cooperates with the urban development ministry SEDATU, the environment ministry SEMARNAT and the five local administrations in Hermosillo, León, Mérida, Morelia and Tlaquepaque.

CiClim is implemented by GIZ and funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

In the municipalities, the project identifies urban areas with potential for densification, supports the development of integrated plans for sustainable urban mobility, and promotes local public transport and active mobility such as cycling and walking. The project supports municipalities in integrating the social and economic value of green spaces and biodiversity into urban planning. Representatives from local policy-making and administrative bodies, as well as people from civil society, receive training in clean, safe and connected mobility.

In its urban mobility component, the project aims at:

  • Strengthening and prioritizing funding for sustainable urban mobility.
  • Integrating urban mobility planning and climate-friendly urban development.
  • Fostering cycling policies in challenging climatic conditions at local level.
  • Building up capacities and implementing pilot projects for climate-sensitive street and public space design.

This project was completed in 2022.
