DESCRIPTION

This programme seeks to support the Dominican authorities at both local and national levels in their engagement in transformational actions for a more sustainable urban mobility. It will support the new transport institution, INTRANT, to implement the recently formulated National Urban Mobility Policy (NUMP), as well as the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) elaborated for the city of Santo Domingo in the framework of MobiliseYourCity (MYC) initiative. It will also measure their impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and report the mitigation outcomes.

The programme will provide the necessary support through technical assistance (capacity building, training, project preparation studies) and investments (in equipment or infrastructure for pilot projects) in order to foster the implementation of some critical measures of the short- and medium-term Action Plan of these mobility strategies.

RESULTS
  • Enhancing safety for women in public transport and surrounding stations.
  • Reduction of traffic congestion within Santo Domingo.
  • Improving accessibility and mobility in the city, increasing economic opportunities, agricultural revenues, and productivity.
