The reality of mobility in today’s cities is alarming— especially when measured against the four criteria that define sustainable mobility:

Concept of cities for all, “referring to the equal use and enjoyment of cities and human settlements, seeking to promote inclusivity and ensure that all inhabitants […] are able to inhabit and produce just, safe, healthy, accessible, affordable, resilient, and sustainable cities and human settlements, to foster prosperity and quality of life for all” (see latest draft of the New Urban Agenda).

To turn this vision into reality, actions to promote sustainable mobility for all will be paramount—starting with the several initiatives currently underway to elaborate a global program of actions and transform the world’s mobility. One such effort is the UN Secretary General’s High-Level Advisory Group on Sustainable Transport, which will issue its recommendations shortly.

Previously, the transport agenda was defined by the goal of providing access to transport infrastructure. Under the new framework, the international community has committed itself to much more. First, the issue is no longer simply access but equitable access for all. Second, other, equally important objectives have been added, including the efficiency and reliability of mobility services, transport safety, and decarbonization. In sum, the internationally accepted transport agenda concerns more than economic and social development; it is also about being part of the climate change solution.

Time for action and accountability. As this new global, goal-centric vision gains traction, the discussion on implementation is rapidly evolving. Focused recommendations have come from the recent report of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Advisory Group (H-LAG) on Sustainable Transport.  It shows how the transport sector can advance sustainable development with poverty reduction at its core, promote economic growth, and bolster the fight against climate change.  Effective, timely implementation of the H-LAG’s recommendations for sustainable transport depends on leadership and concerted, coordinated action from all actors, public and private. But what will be the mechanism to strengthen coherence and accelerate action in support of transformative change?

Common vision. One of the H-LAG recommendations is “establishment of monitoring and evaluation frameworks” to track progress toward implementing the transport-related global commitments, including the SDGs. The World Bank fully embraces this recommendation. With the UK’s DfID, the Bank has convened a multistakeholder partnership to develop a “global tracking framework” that will bring together global goals and country-level performance monitoring on a common platform. The Ashgabat event will include a consultative workshop to (1) discuss a “zero draft” that proposes the global tracking framework and (2) agree on a way forward. The zero draft articulates a vision for transport and sustainable mobility in the form of 4 goals—access for all, efficiency, safety, and green. By uniting all actors in the transport sector around a set of common and clear objectives, the sector will be on a stronger footing and better equipped to address gaps—in action, coordination, and funding—and to generate the transformational changes required for sustainable mobility.
The World Bank strongly supports the 2030 global sustainable development agenda and is integrating SDGs into its engagement with client countries and partners.  Both the public and private sector will have a critical role to play in achieving these goals and targets. Private sector investment will be indispensable to a more sustainably mobile world.

1.25 million lives lost in road accidents annually — 90 percent of these in low -income countries. Air pollution leads to around 6.5 million deaths each year.  Without sustainable transport, we won’t be able to make progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate change. This was the topic of discussion at the first-ever United Nations Conference on Sustainable Transport in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, which took place November 26-27, 2016.

While there is no SDG specifically on transport, it is a means to achieve the SDGs as well as World Bank Group’s twin goalsof ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity.

We need to rethink the transport industry to meet these goals, and redefine what sustainable transport will look like in the future.

First, transport systems should be efficient and accessible for all and support an inclusive and sustainable growth process, by connecting rural and urban parts of a country, and the poor and disadvantaged.

Second, the benefits of modern mobility solutions should cut across economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development leading to the accessibility of new markets, education, health services, and other opportunities.

Third, transport systems should be able to withstand various shocks – especially the effects of climate change — in order to strengthen economies’ resilience.

But to operate such a transformation in the transport sector, we will have to resolve multiple, and often contradictory challenges:

  • responding to a huge increase in mobility needs, both for freight and people in freight volume, without clogging roads with new cars and trucks;
  • ensuring that technology advances are channeled towards more efficient and better coordinated transport systems; and,
  • building better and more resilient transport infrastructure, rather than just more.

We will also have to work as a team, with representatives from governments, international organizations, businesses, civil society and communities.

The transport sector must come together to effectively and aggressively pursue its transformation. And to help the transport community get organized around a common platform, we are proposing to develop with all actors a common initiative called Sustainable Mobility for All which envisions: a common, global vision for transport around clear goals; a coalition of actors to support it; and a program of bold and ambitious actions to transform the world’s mobility.

This new vision is articulated around four pillars: access for all, efficiency, safety, and green. With this initiative, we hope that the transport community will find it easier to speak with one comprehensive and cohesive voice, and to help governments integrate climate, inclusivity, efficiency, and safety considerations into their transport plans.

In Ashgabat, with the support of DFID, we convened the broad transport community to seek feedback and consensus around the four-goal framework for Sustainable Mobility for All. This consultative workshop is the first step in the direction of bringing the transport community together.

The World Bank Group stands ready to support these efforts, with the view of developing the proposed initiative as a truly multi-stakeholder effort that would benefit all actors. By uniting all actors in the transport sector around a set of common and clear objectives, the sector will be on a stronger footing and better equipped to address gaps — in action, coordination, and funding — and to generate the transformational changes required for sustainable mobility.

We all need to work together to transform the transport sector into a sustainable and enabling sector which can advance the SDGs and climate action. With a broad coalition of partners developing Sustainable Mobility for All, we believe we can make sustainable transport a reality.

What can transport learn from similar initiatives in other sectors, such as Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All)?

First, it takes time and maturation. The seeds of the SE4ALL initiative were planted in 2008, with two important appointments—the Chair of UN Energy (a new coordinating body of all UN agencies with energy-related programs), and a new Secretary General’s Advisory Group on Energy and Climate Change. Three years later, the United Nation’s Secretary General formally launched SE4All, with its three overarching objectives: universal access, renewable energy, and energy efficiency.  As the SE4All experience has shown, building a global coalition is a fairly complex and lengthy political endeavor, and certainly one that does not happen overnight. However, the SDG implementation process—not to mention the abundance of fresh evidence about how pressing the climate challenge really is—has put renewed pressure on the transport community to act quickly. There is a real sense of urgency among the sector to agree upon an approach to design and develop metrics for indicators of the transport related SDGs; it has also created a unique space for cooperation among a diverse group of UN and non-UN stakeholders.

Second, a robust monitoring framework was developed to measure progress and hold the sector accountable. In energy, new tools and methodologies were developed, and a Global Tracking Framework(GTF) was established in 2013. The GTF is co-led by the World Bank and the International Energy Agency; it brings together a group of 24 different stakeholders representing key energy interests. In 2015, the international community recognized the three objectives of SE4All as the basis for a distinct Sustainable Development Goal on energy (SDG-7); the United Nations Statistical Commission embraced the GTF with its three objectives and indicators for measuring the implementation of SDG-7. This represents a significant achievement for the energy sector that had not succeeded to get a distinct Millennium Development Goal in 2000. Inclusion of energy in the SDG process was achieved by a well-orchestrated campaign led by SE4ALL and its donors and partners and with the support of civil society. It was established as the umbrella under which sustainable energy interests could gather.

Our sector is in a different place: transport was not able to achieve its own SDG, and was included instead under other sectoral SDGs. As a result, developing a “Global Tracking Framework” for transport will require retrofitting fragmented SDG targets into a comprehensive framework, filling gaps, and agreeing on a few overarching objectives—a tall proposition, to say the least.

To kick start this process, the World Bank convened the international transport community last week with support from DFID, and on behalf of all stakeholders who want to transform the world’s mobility. The main objective of this first Consortium Meeting was to set in motion the process to develop a GTF for transport, based on commonly agreed objectives. To make this happen, engagement and consensus building among stakeholders will be all the more important that objectives in transport have yet to be agreed upon; they do not rest on a High-Level recommendation involving the UN, like they were for energy.

Third, the governance structure of SE4All was discussed and shaped in parallel to efforts on the global tracking framework. SE4ALL was an initiative of the former UN Secretary-General and benefited from the convening power of both the UN and the World Bank. Its Advisory Board was created in 2012, following a series of events and activities, including extensive consultations among diverse stakeholders. There is now a new governance structure. An anchor point will be designated within the UN Secretariat by the new Secretary-General to coordinate at the level of Under-Secretary General with the CEO of the multi-stakeholder quasi-international NGO devoted to SE4All in Austria. The CEO will also serve as Chair of UN Energy.

Transport has its own unique and diverse set of stakeholders. The beginning of any conversation on governance rests on recommendations from a High-level Group and/or UN Resolution. The SG’s High-Level Advisory Group on Sustainable Transport addressed some of these larger governance issues, which can be built upon. But these discussions will take time, and should be separate and distinct from the development of the Global Tracking Framework for transport. During the transition, let’s seize the momentum created in the international community around transport to act collectively and ensure that the sum is more than the individual parts.

This blog is based upon a report commissioned by the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DfID).

Sustainable Mobility for All 

For More Information Contact: Yohan Senarath (

At the Climate Action Summit 2016, the World Bank Group president Jim Yong Kim, called for action to accelerate efforts to unify and transform the transport sector. He proposed to develop, with interested transport stakeholders, a new and strategic global initiative that will support the implementation of the SDGs and transform the sector. This announcement was welcomed by the now former Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon. Out of this call for action, Sustainable Mobility for All™ was born.  In January 2017, the initiative was formally established during its first Consortium Meeting in Washington DC, with a workplan and an interim governance arrangement.  Sustainable Mobility for All™ brings together a diverse and influential group of transport stakeholders, with a commitment to speak with one global voice and act collectively to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and transform the transport sector.

At the 2nd SuM4All Consortium meeting held in Leipzig – May 2017, it was decided that the initiative would work to develop a Global Roadmap of Actions (GRA) to achieve sustainable mobility after the Global Mobility Report was released.

The GRA would consist of a set of policy recommendations and actions that countries can take to achieve sustainable mobility. It will be global in nature with some specificity for example by region, by income group, by landlocked-ness etc. The roadmap will be informed by both data and existing conventions/agreements.

Work in this regard began at the 3rd Consortium Meeting in Bonn – November 2017 with agreement on the process to develop the GRA. At the 4th Consortium Meeting in Washington DC – January 2018, the leads of six Working Groups (WGs) were finalized.

Universal Access (Urban) UITP & ITDP
Universal Access (Rural) DFID & UNDESA
Efficiency UNCTAD & UNECE
Safety WHO, World Bank & UNECE
Green WRI, SLoCaT & PPMC
Gender FIA Foundation & World Bank

Two resources that will be made available to the WGs to complete their mandate are:

  1. A stocktaking on international agreements and conventions
  2. Data-informed country and indicator level analysis

The responsibilities of the six WGs include:

  1. Establish a dedicated working group with all relevant organizations, agencies and experts in the field. The leads are encouraged to include the individuals who attended their working group at the relevant consortium meeting, previous members of their WGs, individuals who reached out to them and the Secretariat, and whoever else they think is an important actor in this area to build their WGs roster. The Secretariat will support the WG Leads in establishing their “community.”

  2. Involve country and city representatives in the development of the roadmap of action.

  3. Lead the working group towards the delivery of a dedicated roadmap of actions. Among others, this will include convening the WG on a bi-monthly basis, engaging and tapping on the expertise of members of the WG, bringing thought leadership to the work done by the WG and at the same time ensuring that the process is inclusive; ensuring that there are no duplications across the various background notes (for the other pillars) and that the notes are synergetic, as well as providing quality assurance to the work done by the consultant and WGs.

We stand for a mobility of goods and people that is:

  • Equitable: Ensuring that transport is connecting people and communities to jobs, schools and health care and in the delivery of goods and services to rural and urban areas, thus providing all with equal opportunities and leaving no one behind.

  • Efficient: Ensuring that the increased demand for mobility is met at the least possible cost for society. This includes road, rail, maritime, ferry and air transport, as well as non-motorized transport, such as cycling and walking.

  • Safe: Reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities from transportation mishaps across all modes of transport.

  • Green: Lowering the environmental footprint of the transport sector to combat climate change and pollution.

  • In 2012, transport was the largest energy consuming sector in 40 percent of countries worldwide, and in the remaining countries it was the second-largest energy consuming sector.

  • Energy related CO₂ emissions are expected to grow by 40 percent between 2013 and 2040.

  • The sector already contributes 23 percent of global energy-related greenhouse gas emissions and 18 percent of all man-made emissions in the global economy.

  • Air pollution—both ambient (outdoor) and household (indoor)—is the biggest environmental risk to health.

  • Ambient air pollution alone kills about three million people each year.

  • Evidence from a few countries suggests that traffic noise has the second biggest environmental impact on health after air pollution.

Objective and Target

The Green Mobility objective aims to shift transport systems onto the low polluting (GHG/air/noise), climate resilient path. The importance of Green mobility is such that several international agreements relate to it directly and indirectly.

The Green Mobility objective proposes four different quantified targets to be achieved by 2030 and 2050, one for each of the four key dimensions— climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, air pollution, physical inactivity and noise pollution. The set targets are consistent with international agreements (where they exist).

Relationship to SDG’s

Green Mobility is reflected indirectly in seven SDG targets (3.4, 3.9, 7.3, 9.4, 11.6, 13.1, and 13.2), and in the Paris Agreement under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its related Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

  • SDG 3.4 By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being.

  • SDG 3.9 By 2030, substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water, and soil pollution and contamination.

  • SDG 7.3 By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.

  • SDG 9.4 By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities.

  • SDG 11.6 By 2030, reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality and municipal and other waste management.

  • SDG 13.1 Strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries.

  • SDG 13.2 Integrate climate change measures into national policies, strategies, and planning.

  • Transport network efficiency is becoming increasingly important as countries strive to integrate further into global value chains.

  • Total freight transport demand is expected to triple within 35 years.

  • Compared with developed countries, developing countries have higher trade costs and lower levels of trade integration.

  • High-income OECD countries have more efficient regulations for truck licenses and domestic operations, a more comprehensive system for ensuring the quality of truck operations and a higher degree of openness to foreign competition.

  • Contracting Parties to United Nations Conventions in general have in place more efficient systems to facilitate border crossings for international transit, or have established coherent systems of international road, rail or waterways networks.

  • While globally the average fuel economy has consistently improved from 2005 to 2015, the rate of improvement has slowed down recently.

Objective and Target

The Efficiency objective aims to “increase the efficiency of transport systems by 2030.” It captures two key concepts: productive efficiency (concerned with the optimal method of producing goods), and allocative efficiency (concerned with the distribution and allocation of resources in society). The scope of the efficiency objective is limited to the “macro” perspective, where efficiency refers to the optimization of resources—energy, technology, space, technology institutions and regulations—to generate an efficient transport system at the regional, national and global level. There is no internationally quantified target that summarizes the several aspects of this objective.

Relationship to SDG’s

The concept of Efficiency features directly and indirectly in several SDG targets. There are no internationally agreed upon global targets for efficiency, but qualitative direction is given in some of the SDGs (e.g., SDG7.3).

  • SDG 7.3 By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.

  • SDG 9.1 Develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including regional and trans-border infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being, with a focus on affordable and equitable access for all.

  • SDG 9.4 By 2030, upgrade infrastructure and retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes, with all countries taking action in accordance with their respective capabilities.

  • SDG 12.c Rationalize inefficient fossil-fuel subsidies that encourage wasteful consumption by removing market distortions, in accordance with national circumstances, including by restructuring taxation and phasing out those harmful subsidies, where they exist, to reflect their environmental impacts, taking fully into account the specific needs and conditions of developing countries and minimizing the possible adverse impacts on their development in a manner that protects the poor and the affected communities.

  • SDG 12.3 By 2030, halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including postharvest losses.

  • SDG 17.14 Enhance policy coherence for sustainable development.

  • On roads, the fatality risk for motorcyclists is 20 times higher than for car occupants, followed by cycling and walking, with 7 to 9 times higher risk than car travel, respectively.

  • Globally, 40 to 50 percent of traffic fatalities occur in urban areas. Evidence suggests that the highest fatality rates occur in cities in the developing world. The proportion of fatalities in urban areas is high and rising in low and middle income countries.

  • Air transport has seen a continuous reduction in the number of fatalities and fatal crashes over recent years, and some regions have begun to experience zero fatalities.

  • Based on data for the EU and North America, safety performance on railways has also improved over the last 20 years.

Objective and Target

The Safety objective aims to “improve safety of mobility across transport modes.” Unsafe mobility in any transport mode can pose significant public health risks and lead to social and economic losses.

The target of this objective is to halve the number of deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents by 2020 (SDG target 3.6) and reduce by 5 percent the fatalities and injuries from each of the other modes of transport (waterborne, air, and rail transport) by 2020.

Relationship to SDG’s

While numerous agencies—international, governmental, and non-governmental—have attempted to address the safety of different modes of transport, there has been no overarching effort to set an overall target for safety of mobility and to collect reliable global data on transport safety. However, there are internationally agreed targets for road safety and aviation safety. Road safety is featured directly in two Sustainable Development Goal targets (3.6 and 11.2). Air transport safety is covered in the Global Aviation Safety Plan 2017–19.

  • SDG 3.6 By 2020, halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.

  • SDG 11.2 By 2030, provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations, women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons.

  • In rural areas, where the majority of the world’s poor live, limited access to transport is a key challenge to eradicating poverty and promoting sustainable economic development.

  • Around 450 million people in Africa – or more than 70 percent of its total rural population – are estimated to have been left unconnected due to missing transport infrastructure and systems.

  • In urban areas, where an additional two billion people are expected to be living in cities by 2045, the growth in population is far outstripping the growth in public transport.

  • The lack of access to transport services has disproportionately negative impacts on specific groups like women and girls. For example, 6 in 10 women in major Latin American cities report they’ve been physically harassed while using transport systems.

Objective and Target

The universal access objective aims to “ensure for all equitable access to economic and social opportunities by 2030.” Equity and inclusivity are at the heart of Universal Access.  Attainment of SDG target 11.2, by focusing on urban access, and SDG target 9.1, by focusing on rural access, should be the main targets (to be achieved by 2030) for the Universal Access objective. While both SDGs acknowledge that transport should “leave no one behind,” there is no internationally quantified target for this objective.

Relationship to SDG’s

The concept of Universal Access features directly in two of the Sustainable Development Goal targets.

  • SDG 9.1 Develop quality, reliable, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure, including regional and trans-border infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being, with a focus on affordable and equitable access for all.

  • SDG 11.2 By 2030, provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable, situations, women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons. This is at the heart of the Habitat III New Urban Agenda.

We are reshaping the mobility agenda by our:

  • Advocacy: for greater coherence in international, national, and local transport policies and investments. More coherence means more predictability—a key factor to attract private investments and make real changes happen.

  • Actions: promoting policy reforms and investments that will achieve a mobility pattern that is sustainable. Laying out a roadmap of actions for the international community to consider in order to achieve the goals of universal accessefficiencysafety and green mobility.

  • Financing: for delivering the “right” mobility. Sum4All and its partners will work towards increasing and directing financing to achieve the four global objectives.

Moving people and goods around the world is now faster, cheaper and more efficient than it ever was. Thanks to air travel, journeys that once took weeks or even months can now be completed within a day. Larger number of goods can now be shipped from one corner of the globe to another with the help of faster and bigger cargo ships helping international trade flourish. Meanwhile increasing access to transport has helped connect millions with better jobs, education and health care.

Demand for transport in the near future is set to increase dramatically. By 2030, annual passenger traffic is set to increase by 50%, global freight volumes by 70% and an additional 1.2 billion cars will be on the road by 2050. With half of the new world population entering the middle-class, lifestyle and mobility expectations are changing radically.

How can we ensure that this demand for greater mobility from the current generation is not met at the expense of future generations? In other words, how can we ensure that mobility is sustainable?

Did You Know ?

  • At least, 1 billion people in low-income countries do not have access to an all-weather road.

  • In rural areas, 4% of food losses occur post-harvest, including degradation and spillage due to poor transport conditions.

  • About 7.5 billion trips are taken every day in urban areas worldwide, but less than 16% on public transport. In Sub-Saharan Africa (and North America), less than 5% of trips are taken using public transport.

  • Only 22% of transport workers in the European Union are women.

  • More than 1.25 million people continue to be killed in the world’s roadways every year and 50 million injured.

  • Nine out of ten road deaths occur in low and middle income countries despite them having just over half the total number of vehicles in the world.

  • Transport is responsible for 64% of global oil consumption and 23% of energy related green-house gas emissions.

  • Developing countries pay 40-70% more to ship internationally per dollar of import.

But the following is also true:

  • Transport has become the backbone of virtual mobility. For example, rural residents in China are now connected virtually with global markets through an on-line marketplace company; this allows them to transport their produce to the whole world and have goods like fertilizers and seeds brought to their doorstep.

  • The African continent could become self-sufficient in food and create a regional food market worth $1 trillion by 2030 if it could significantly improve access of farmers to markets through roads.

  • Transport corridors are the lifeline of refugees and vulnerable people in humanitarian crises, emergencies and disaster situations.

  • Mobility is shaping the future of cities. In Africa, many cities are ill prepared for the expected increase in urban population. In Mumbai, 8 million passengers per day – more than the population of Bulgaria – access their jobs through urban rail.

It is time to re-examine how we can ensure that mobility is safe, efficient, and green, while leaving no one behind. We have a shared global responsibility to ensure that the transport sector moves in the right direction.

Implementing the SDGs

Accomplishing the SDGs will rely on advances in mobility. For example, global progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions (SDG 13) cannot be realized without decisive action on energy (SDG 7) and sustainable transport. Countries cannot provide food security (SDG 2) or healthcare (SDG 3) without providing reliable and sustainable transport systems. Young people cannot attend schools (SDG 4), women cannot be assured opportunities for employment and empowerment (SDG 5), and people with disabilities and elderly people cannot maintain their independence and dignity without safe transport that is accessible to all. Personal security for all passengers is critical. Goals of biodiversity (SDG 15) and ocean health (SDG 14) also have significant intersections with the promotion of smart, sustainable mobility practices across regions and across modes. Finally, strengthening the means of implementation (SDG17) of the SDGs with coherent policies are also central for transportation.

Two SDG targets are directly transport-related.

  • Target 3.6

By 2020 to halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents.

  • Target 11. 2

Aims to, by 2030, provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations – women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons.

Partners of the SuM4All initiative gathered at the World Bank Headquarters to endorse the newly unveiled SuM4All Charter which upon signing formalized their membership in the initiative.

Laura Tuck, Vice President of Sustainable Development for the World Bank who graced the occasion, highlighted that the Charter celebrated the values that lay at the heart of this initiative – values of partnership, cooperation, constructive dialogue, engagement, and commitment to promoting gender equality in all our activities.

She continued that it is because of honoring these values, that the membership of this initiative had grown substantially and achieved much since its inception one and a half years ago. Bearing this in mind, we now seek to institutionalize these values through the endorsement of the SuM4All Charter.
