The Low Carbon Transport for Urban Sustainability (LOTUS) initiative aims to tackle 5 systemic challenges in the urban mobility landscape, specifically in the Global South. They are the financing gap, weak policymaking and implementation capability, lack of policy coherence and targets, difficulty integrating and regulating informal transport and siloed thinking around modes.
Divided into three streams, the initiative will take concrete actions to scale up investment in e-vehicles, empower and invest in informal transport to decarbonise, and build capacity in low- and middle-income countries. UITP will co-lead that last track where capacity building specifically focusses on developing integrated, multimodal policy frameworks.
