Objective: Raise awareness of the contribution of urban mobility to climate change mitigation in more ambitious NDC.

Overview:

This event will look at how urban mobility was included in first generation NDC´s and the potential contribution of urban mobility to increasing ambition in NDC´s based on international good practice. It will also show examples in the implementation/treatment of NDC in urban mobility.
It will show how National Urban Mobility Planning (NUMP) is being used in Latin America to catalyse sustainable and low-carbon urban mobility development on a national level and contribute to the implementation of NDC.
The event will draw on European and global experience as well as examples from the Latin America region including a presentation of Uruguay as an example of EUROCLIMA+ supported action in the region.
