In a fast-changing world, making the right policy decisions has become more challenging than ever. Transportation and mobility are key components of the well-being of our daily lives and livelihoods and therefore, rethinking and adapting transport policy must be prioritised.

The Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) partnership—a coalition of more than 50 influential international organisations 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 reinforcing 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 a better future for our planet.

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

  • Key dynamics 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 customised country roadmaps of action towards sustainable mobility;
  • Sharing knowledge and experience with peer countries on the implementation of actions plans.

  • Session 1: The imperative for a New Approach to Transport Policy - 14 September, 2021 
  • Session 2: Defining a Path Forward with Data - 21 September 2021
