EUROCLIMA+ is a regional cooperation programme that fosters climate-resilient and sustainable development in 18 countries in Latin America. Its targets currently are focused to provide technical and financial support for the development and implementation of climate change adaptation and mitigation policies while facilitating policy dialogue and climate action. In this framework, this project is aimed to provide support for the development of sustainable urban mobility in Latin America through direct support to Latin American partners and GIZ in the development of the EUROCLIMA+ Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) in three pilot cities.
