Funded by the Hewlett Foundation and the EcoMobility Alliance, the “Cities SHIFT: Capacity Building and Networking for climate- and people-friendly mobility” project is to support cities to identify challenges and opportunities of its urban mobility system with the hope that the city could shift towards more ecomobile modes of travel, i.e. walking, cycling, shared and public transport. The project is implemented through performance measurement of the mobility system through EcoMobility SHIFT+ methodology; capacity building; and global dissemination.
The EcoMobility Alliance is a network of ambitious cities, led by innovators and visionaries, supported by experts and businesses, committed to building a sustainable mobility future that is efficient, people-centered, low emission and environmentally-friendly. Founded in 2011 with six cities, the Alliance has since grown to 23 cities from various regions of the world. For more information ➔
