Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI)
The Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI) aims to help phase out conventionally fuelled vehicles and increase the share of electric vehicles (2-,3- and 4-wheelers) in the total volume of individual motorized transport in cities to at least 30% by 2030. The UEMI is an active partnership that aims to track international action in the area of electric mobility and aims to initiate local action. The UEMI delivers tools and guidelines, generates synergies between e-mobility programmes and supports local implementation action.
UEMI and UN-Habitat are jointly running a Change Maker capacity building programme, which works towards the implementation of sustainable urban development measures, assessing the opportunities for equal access to urban basic services. This partnership focuses on closing the implementation gap between applied research and policy action to foster sustainable development around the world. UEMI develops implementation-ready concepts bringing together local demand, technical expertise and policy advice with financing institutions.
