Sparking active mobility actions for climate-friendly cities
Walking and cycling are often overlooked in city planning, despite its growing importance as the most affordable, resilient, and clean form of transport. The “Sparking active mobility actions for climate-friendly cities” project (2022-2024) aims to promote active mobility strategies, policies and practices contributing to avoiding greenhouse gas emissions, improving safe connectivity in cities, and promoting climate-friendly mobility behavior in the Philippines.
The SPARK project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability is the implementing partner. ICLEI World Secretariat is responsible for general project management and coordination. ICLEI Southeast Asia Secretariat is responsible for building political support at the national and sub-national levels and promoting city and community engagement.
The Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC) is an international non-government group advancing fair climate policy and low carbon, climate-resilient development. Based in the Philippines, it is engaged with the wider international climate and energy policy arena, particularly in Asia. It is recognized for its role in helping advance effective global climate action and the Paris climate agreement.
