New Global Roadmap of Action to guide the future of mobility

2 November 2019

Story from the International Road Federation.

The Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) initiative, the Global Roadmap of Action toward Sustainable Mobility (GRA), is a tool to guide country decision-makers on "how to" achieve mobility that is efficient, accessible, safe and green.

The GRA follows the 2017 launch of Global Mobility Report, the first-ever global assessment of the transport sector across all modes.

With growing urbanization, increasing world trade and new technologies, the global mobility system is stressed. More than 1 billion people, or one-third of the global rural population, lacks access to all-weather roads and transport services - a major barrier to social and economic advancement. The GRA will help tackle this urgency by taking a holistic approach of sustainability and offering concrete policy solutions countries can adapt and adopt to achieve sustainable mobility. As a tool, the GRA helps countries identify gaps, crucial steps, and appropriate policies to ensure that transport contributes to attain the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and improve the sustainability of their transport system.
