Sustainable Mobility Requires a New Policy Approach Today, Knowledge Exchange Course

The World Bank is hosting the Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) partnership, a virtual knowledge exchange from September 13 to October 8, 2021.With four sessions over four weeks, these events will be an opportunity to look at the new policy requirements necessary to achieve sustainable mobility.

Hyper-digitalization of large segments of the world economy is transforming the way we communicate, learn, relate to one another, connect and move. As countries around the world undergo a fundamental reconfiguration to adapt, making the right policy decisions has become more challenging than ever.

The Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) partnership - a coalition of more than 50 influential international organizations hosted by the World Bank - has stepped up to meet this challenge and has developed a new approach to designing and planning transport policy, and a set of tools that are adapted to this fast-changing environment.

As part of this effort, SuM4All collaboratively defined the ambition for transport around four enforcing goals: universal access, efficiency, safety and green mobility. Aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement, these four goals provide the foundation for building better future for our planet.

This four-module virtual knowledge exchange geared towards transport decisions makers and stakeholders will cover:

  • Key dynamics that are shaping the future of mobility and necessitating a new policy approach, including the SDGs, data and technology, open government and citizen engagement, and equity and inclusion;
  • Measurement and tracking of country progress towards sustainable mobility;
  • Generation of customized country roadmaps of action towards sustainable mobility;
  • Sharing knowledge and experience with peer countries on implementation of actions plans.
