Publication Year: 2015

Author(s): Dasgupta A, Guislain P


The World Bank and the World Resources Institute (WRI) believe that There are big chances for the international community to help put cities on a more sustainable path, so this opportunity must be seized, because cities and urban mobility are key to a sustainable future. This transition to smart, sustainable mobility requires both local innovation and global knowledge exchange to find the right solutions. While action for a more sustainable urban future begins at the city level, the global community can foster the ambition of city leaders by building consensus on the path forward for sustainable cities and urban mobility.
