The overarching goal of the “CitiesSHIFT: Capacity building and networking for climate- and people-friendly mobility” project was to support cities to identify challenges and opportunities of urban mobility system in the hope that the city could shift towards more ecomobile modes of travel, i.e., walking, cycling, shared and public transport. Hewlett Foundation and the EcoMobility Alliance funded the two-year project (2018 to 2020).
