Over the past two years, the international community has adopted several global commitments related to transport: the Sustainable Development Goals, the UN Decade of Action on Road Safety, the Paris Climate Agreement, the Vienna Program of Actions on Landlocked Countries, the New Urban Agenda at Habitat III, to cite a few. There is an urgent need to structure the transport agenda, fill gaps where needed, and bring coherence to actions in this space.
The strategic initiative—Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All)—responds to this need. The WBG’s President put forward the concept at the UN Climate Action Summit in May of 2016, with the view that it would be refined and substantiated further over time by the international transport community. The proposed initiative consists of four elements: (1) a commonly agreed vision for sustainable mobility, which is articulated around a few, clearly defined global objectives; (2) a global tracking framework (GTF) to measure progress toward these objectives; (3) a global program of actions; and (4) a global governance structure to support the implementation of the first three components.
