Mexico Cities NMT Policies

In recent years in Mexico, the interest and importance in establishing sustainable urban mobility solutions has grown for the improvement of existing problems such as poor air quality and congestion, and to mitigate the effects of climate change. Many cities have begun promoting and investing in Non-Motorized Transportation (NMT) as a multi-faceted sustainable solution. Fostering NMT investments and policies are integral as they present numerous benefits for the environment, air quality, road safety and access to basic services.

The state government of Aguascalientes and Oaxaca formed a collaborative relationship with the World Resources Institute (WRI), the United Nations Environment and Share the Road initiative to develop a Non-Motorized Transport public policy through local capacity building and developing instruments for policy and planning.
