Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting & Communication Manager

The association

CODATU is a non-profit organisation, regulated by the French law of 1901 and founded during the World Conference on Urban Transport organised in Dakar, Senegal in 1980. The Association’s main objective is to promote the implementation of sustainable urban mobility policies in developing cities and stimulate the exchange of knowledge and know-how through international cooperation, involving all stakeholders from the sector of transport and urban mobility: Public authorities, private entities, research institutes and other professionals of the urban mobility field.

Besides the biannual conferences organised by the Association, CODATU is also involved in Technical Assistances, publications and capacity-building, degrees and trainings aimed at decision-makers from the south, transport experts or students interested in the field of transport and mobility.

The development of the Association’s activities is enabled by a tight collaboration with local and regional authorities, and French partners such as the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity (MTES), the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM), and the French Development Agency (AFD). Other technical partners include the French Environment and Energy Agency (ADEME), the French Centre for Studies and Expertise on Risks, Environment, Mobility, and Urban Planning (CEREMA) with whom CODATU, via the MobiliseYourCity partnership intends to support the actions against climate change.

The MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a global and inclusive network of cities and countries as well as an umbrella brand of European development cooperation particularly related to the field of sustainable urban transport. The Partnership aims at assisting beneficiary partners – i.e. national and local governments – in their preparation of National Urban Mobility Policies and Investment Programs (NUMPs) and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). It facilitates the establishment of framework conditions for effective investment and sustainable development of urban transport infrastructure & services as well as regulatory soft measures.

Furthermore, the MobiliseYourCity Partnership is a global climate partnership for integrated urban mobility planning in emerging, developing and EU neighborhood countries, and an international transport alliance under the UN Marrakesh Partnership for Global Climate Action. To date the Partnership has over EUR 40 million for technical assistance and counts 11 countries and 42 local governments as Beneficiary Partners, with the aim of increasing membership to 20 countries and 100 cities.

CODATU is one of the founding partners of the MobiliseYourCity partnership and contributes to the implementation of the Secretariat activities by providing human resources.

MobiliseYourCity Partnership

Initiated by CODATU, MobiliseYourCity supports local governments in developing countries to plan sustainable urban mobility in order to develop more inclusive, liveable and economically efficient cities and reduce GHG emissions.

100 cities and 20 national governments will be engaged in deep transformational actions through the implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP) supported by National Sustainable Urban Mobility Policies and Programmes (NUMP). MobiliseYourCity aims to assist cities in their efforts to cut at least 50% of their urban transport related emissions by 2050 compared to business as usual.

With the support of a coalition of international partners (development agencies, urban and transport planning agencies, NGOs and development banks), MobiliseYourCity provides a methodological framework, capacity building and technical assistance, and facilitates access to financing at both local and national levels. The partnership will set up an international reference platform to share best practices about sustainable urban mobility planning and implementation of SUMPs and NUMPs.
