Pathways for Urban Mobility
Side Event at the UN-Habitat Governing Council - 11 May 2017
The New Urban Agenda provides a great opportunity to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement and urban mobility can make a vital contribution to this. This is where international partnerships can make a contribution to the uptake of innovative and sustainable urban mobility solutions across the world by facilitating dialogue and exchange, promoting successful policy, providing guidance and tailored advice to city officials, and fostering future cooperation on research, development and innovation. During this side event the opportunities and barriers of sustainable transport measures and the contribution of city-to-city cooperation to boost take-up and transfer were discussed. The event was jointly organized by the SOLUTIONS network, the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI) and the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI).
SOLUTIONS_UEMI will link their activities to boost their impact, and also create new partnerships to develop targeted concepts and pilot projects for sustainable urban mobility solutions. SOLUTIONS/UEMI aims to support urban mobility implementation actions that contribute to the Paris Agreement and the New Urban Agenda.
