17 January 2018

With the signing of the Consortium Charter in Washington DC, the International Road Federation, Geneva has formalised its involvement in the Sustainable Mobility for All Initiative (SuM4All).

Led by the World Bank, the SuM4All is a multi-stakeholder partnership that aims to reshape the global mobility agenda through advocacy, action, and financing. SuM4All brings together a diverse and high-level group of stakeholders which includes:

  • Multilateral Developments Banks
  • United Nations Agencies
  • Programs
  • Regional Commissions
  • Bilateral donor organizations

Susanna Zammataro, IRF Executive Director, signed the charter with Laura Tuck, Vice President of Sustainable Development for the World Bank at a ceremony held at the World Bank headquarters in Washington DC on 11th January 2018.

"After the release of the Global Mobility Report to which IRF Geneva has provided input for the Safety and Efficiency chapters, we are now working with the other members of the consortium on the further development and implementation of a Global Tracking Framework, a new data platform to help track global progress towards sustainable mobility" said Susanna Zammataro.

Speaking at the ceremony, Laura Tuck underlined that, "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. We stand for a mobility of goods and people that is equitable, efficient, safe and green."
