Organisational structure SuM4All is a global, multi-stakeholder partnership. In January 2017, representatives from over 50 organizations and agencies agreed to form a Consortium to advance action in the transport sector. This group included the multilateral development banks, United Nations agencies, bilateral donor organizations, non-governmental organizations, civil society, and academic institutions with the ambition to achieve a world in which mobility is sustainable. n interim governance arrangement was put in place to get the initiative off the ground, consisting of a Steering Committee, five open-working groups, and a Secretariat, with the following mandate:

SuM4All Steering Committee (June 2018): consists of World Bank (Secretariat); UN DESA ; International Transport Forum (ITF); IADB (Chair, MDB Working Group on Sustainable Transport); DFID; BMZ and one representative from each of the five open-ended working groups.

Open Working Groups: consists of five informal groups with open membership to all stakeholders that have a specific interest or have undertaken extensive work in the transport related SDG targets to be addressed by that working group: Access(Rural); Access(Urban); Efficiency; Safety and Green.

SuM4All Secretariat: run by the World Bank and helps shepherd the Consortium and Steering Committee forward.
