ACCESS: Accelerating Access to Low Carbon Urban Mobility Solutions through Digitalization

Latin America's transport sector is responsible for 35 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. By accelerating access to low-carbon urban mobility solutions through digitalisation, the project aims to measurably reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector in urban areas in six Latin American countries. To achieve this, existing and new data and technology solutions will be used to enhance the positive aspects of transport innovations and mitigate the negative aspects. Furthermore, successes and lessons learned in digital development from other sectors will be used to inform project activities and policy recommendations to policy partners. Transport-related Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) will be integrated into the objectives and targets for each country. The project includes activities and outputs at regional, national and city levels.
