DescriptionThis project is aimed at reducing GHG emissions and improve air quality through rationalization and energy efficiency measures in the transport sector and sound land-use management in the Latin American region. The specific objectives of the project are to: (i) induce sustainable transport policies, and programs in Latin American cities that contribute to a long-term modal shift to more efficient modes of transport; (ii) promote sound land-use development planning consistent with sustainable transport principles; (iii) induce air quality improvements in Latin American urban centers; (iv) foster a regional common approach to sustainable transport, articulating land-use planning, and air quality policies; and (v) create a network of Latin American cities to allow sharing of regional experiences, enhance the analytical tools available at the institutional level, and make them available to all interested cities. The project will consist of a programmatic WB operation, divided in three phases.
