1. Engagement in international partnerships.
The MobiliseYourCity Partnership, jointly funded by the European Union, France and Germany, aims to enable the transformation to sustainable urban mobility through Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) and National Urban Policies and Investment Programmes (NUMPs).
To date, MobiliseYourCity has supported a total of nine NUMPs and 31 SUMPs in Africa, Asia and Latin America. A total of 1.7 billion euros has been mobilized to implement the plans already developed (including the acquisition of nearly 400 buses and construction 10 metro lines and 13 bus rapid lanes).
The measures are expected to save 15.56 MtCO2e by 2030 and provide 8.8 million people with better access to public transport.
2. Preparation of national mitigation measures.
The project supported five partner countries in developing national GHG mitigation policies in the transport sector and accessing climate finance.
These country measures supported by TRANSfer III were able to mobilize a total of 451 million euros in funding for their implementation, with further investments still pending. Most of the funding comes from national budgets, which underscores the partner countries' commitment to international climate protection and sustainable transportation.
In total, 48.7 megatons of CO2e can be saved in the first 10 years of implementation.
3. Knowledge products, capacity development and dialogue.
TRANSfer III promoted knowledge sharing and dissemination among international practitioners and decision-makers through the development of 37 knowledge products, the knowledge platform www.changing-transport.org, a newsletter, the organization of events and trainings. More than 3,700 professionals have already benefitted from our capacity building services. The Transport and Climate Change Week, designed and organized by the project, established itself as a platform for global exchange and will continue as GIZ's flagship event in the transport sector.
