Ciudades en Movimiento (CIMO)

The Ciudades en Movimiento (CIMO) project supports the cities of Piura, Arequipa, Trujillo. Around 3 million inhabitants benefit from CIMO’s support in these cities. At national level, the project works with PROMOVILIDAD, other departments of the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation. The project contributes to three NDCs (Nationally Determined Contributions) and SDG 3, 5, 9, 11, 13 (Sustainable Development Goals) of Agenda 2030.

The project’s objectives:

1. It strengthens the National Sustainable Urban Transport Program (PROMOVILIDAD)

Four reference documents for the implementation of urban transport policy have been designed and approved to date: integrated speed management, good driving behavior, bicycle parking and road safety policy.

2. It develops successful measures for gender-equitable, integrated transport systems

For the first time, a method was developed to calculate the emission of greenhouse gases and environmental pollutants by the transport sector in the cities. In addition, data on sexual harassment on public transport was collected in the three cities to prepare for the effective implementation of the protocol against sexual harassment in public transport. In 2023, CIMO also supported the first “Safe School Streets” pilot project in Peru to create a safer environment for children going to school.

3. It is committed to the broad use of digital technologies.

The introduction of two digital instruments in the transport sector for use in cities is currently in the pipeline.

4. It introduces concepts to formalize and professionalize private transport companies.

For the first time, an analysis of the business models of private transport companies in Piura, Trujillo and Arequipa is available.
