A partnership is accelerating the transition to sustainable urban mobility.

Launched at COP21 in Paris, the MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a leading global partnership for sustainable mobility of nearly 100 partners, including 65 city members and 15 country members. With 38 million euros to support mobility planning (SUMPs and NUMPs) in 38 cities and 10 countries, the 9 first projects completed in 2019 have mobilised 811 million euros for concrete sustainable mobility projects.

Furthermore, the MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a global alliance for integrated urban mobility planning in emerging, developing and EU neighborhood countries, and an international mobility flagship under the UN Marrakesh Partnership for Global Climate Action. It is a multi-donor action, jointly co-financed by the European Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO), the French Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity-based Transition (MTES), the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM), and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The Partnership is implemented jointly by its implementing partners ADEME, AFD, CEREMA, CODATU, EBRD, GIZ, KfW, and WUPPERTAL INSTITUTE. Besides contribution to the international climate process, it contributes to the UN’s Agenda 2030, specifically Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.


The Partnership facilitates the establishment of framework conditions and institutional preparedness for effective sector investments and sustainable development of urban transport infrastructure & services as well as regulatory soft measures. Goals:

  • 20 national governments commit themselves to introduce sustainable urban mobility policies and/or investment programmes
  • 100 cities engage in reducing their emissions by 50% through the development of integrated sustainable urban mobility plans

MobiliseYourCity assists its beneficiary partners to shape urbanization and transport development in a sustainable and climate-friendly manner. Mitigation measures are prepared through integrated planning and consultation with different stakeholders at an early stage. MobiliseYourCity supports as financing facility budgeting, development of financial mechanisms and initiation of national and international funding to ensure successful implementation.
