The EUROCLIMA+ programme promotes environmentally sustainable and climate-resilient development in 18 Latin American countries. EUROCLIMA+ provides technical and financial support to the development and implementation of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies and facilitates regional policy dialogue and climate action in seven sectors, including urban mobility. The urban mobility component also includes the establishment of a community of practice for the region with the purpose of strengthening knowledge exchange and interaction among regional and international practitioners and decision-makers.

Through the urban mobility component, EUROCLIMA+ supports the development of National Urban Mobility Policies and Programmes (NUMP), Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) and pilot projects in selected partner countries and cities.

The selection of beneficiaries was conducted through a call for proposals with a set of selection criteria (e.g. relevance of the proposed activities for emission reductions, sustainability of the proposed activities, potential regional impact, etc.).

The community of practice will work in close cooperation with the MobiliseYourCity Partnership on NUMPs and SUMPs, with UN Environment on Electric Mobility and with the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) on Financing. The community of practice will promote synergies and the dissemination of best practices.

EUROCLIMA+ is funded by the European Union and implemented by five European agencies. Implementing agencies for the urban mobility component are GIZ and AFD.

Implementation: Urban mobility component: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and Agence Française de Développement (AFD)
