The Sustainable Urban Mobility in Asia (SUMA) program worked with Asian cities and countries to strengthen the formulation and implementation of sustainable urban transportation and air quality management policies. It was a 3-year program supported by the Asian Development through a grant from the Swedish International Cooperation Agancy (Sida).
SUMA was jointly implemented by the Clean Air Asia and its Country Networks, the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ-SUTP), the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP), the Interface for Cycling Expertise (I-CE), the United Nations Centre for Regional Developement (UNCRD), the World Resources Institute's Center for Sustainable Transport - EMBARQ, and key experts Christopher Cherry and Marie Thynell.
SUMA conducted various studies, policy dialogues and action planning, training, conferences, and pilot projects and focused on areas like social impacts of transportation, bus rapid transit, non-motorized transportation, electric bicycles, motorized 2-3 wheelers, transportation demand management and fiscal measures.
The main locations where SUMA worked were the People’s Republic of China, India, Pakistan, and the Philippines, but the knowledge products from SUMA are relevant throughout the region and available online (see SUMA Outputs).
