|Name of initiative||Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI)|
|Secretariat||Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI), Andre Dzikus (UN-Habitat); + 254-20-7623060, 7623668; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Name of lead organisation||UN-Habitat|
|Type of lead organisation||International organisation|
|Location/Nationality of lead organisation||Kenya|
|Description||With commitments from industry and government, UEMI will function as an open forum for knowledge transfer and support for the take-up of e-mobility solutions around the world. It will initiate a process of dialogue and continue to gather commitments from local and national governments as well as businesses on e-mobility targets.|
|Objectives|| Industry leaders (car and battery manufacturers, energy producers, distributors, renewables) pledge that in pursing the goal of sustainable development, with particular reference to transport and mobility, they will strive to increase the global market share of electric vehicles in cities to reach at least 30% by 2030.
Government and City representatives pledge that in pursuing the goal of sustainable urbanisation, they will strive towards a goal of: By 2030 Electric Vehicles will form 30% of the fleet of light duty vehicles (LDV), plying in their cities.
Multilateral Development Banks: Will Pledge to increase their investments in infrastructure to support cities in attaining the goal of 30% of the LDV fleet being comprised of Electric Vehicles.
|Activities|| UEMI is working with cities on the implementation of sustainable urban mobility measures in the context of the New Urban Agenda. As part of urban implementation actions, the UEMI team now works with cities to assess the opportunities for e-mobility concepts in their wider sustainable transport strategy. The current 23 cities engaged in the program have a combined population of over 46 million people covering key emerging economies. • Besides the 23 cities, more cities will be added in the future to benefit from the Capacity building efforts and implementation action.
The UEMI is an active partnership that aims to track international action in the area of electric mobility and aims to initiate local action. Knowledge Building:
Policy-making and implementation:
|One or two success stories achieved|
Monitoring and Impacts
|Function of initiative||Implementation, Technical dialogue, Political dialogue|
|Activity of initiative||Goal setting (ex-ante), Knowledge dissemination and exchange, Awareness raising and outreach|
|Goals|| By 2030 Electric Vehicles will form 30% of the fleet of light duty vehicles (LDV), plying in their cities.
UEMI aims to help phasing out the use of conventionally fuelled vehicles in cities and increase the share of electric vehicles in individual mobility (2-3 wheelers and light duty vehicles) in urban areas to at least 30% by 2030. The UEMI aims to boost the share of electric vehicles in urban transport and integrate electric mobility into a wider concept of sustainable urban transport that achieves a 30% reduction of GHG emissions in urban areas by 2030.
|Comments on indicators and goals|
|How will goals be achieved|
|Have you changed or strenghtened your goals|
|Progress towards the goals|| The initiative is working on the development of a pipeline of project concepts that can be taken further towards implementation. It will also work on capacity building and the development of a toolkit on sustainable urban mobility in 2016.
A new series of trainings, webinars and e-learning courses and a call for partner cities will be launched in late-2016 together with the urban mobility SOLUTIONS network.
