Data as a force to shape future urban mobility. Bridging the data divide to shape a just digital transformation for climate-friendly urban mobility.
The sheer volume of data collected has grown exponentially. But particularly in developing and emerging countries, major gaps in availability, quality and usability of data lead to a lack of significant resources necessary to face the complex urban challenges. The Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI)– funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) – believes that for cities, data is a crucial enabler to make better as well as more informed decisions about sustainable mobility. With the development of an Urban Mobility Data Hub, TUMI is working together with its partners on making mobility data available for 40 cities in Africa, Latin America and Asia to shape the digital transformation of urban mobility in a climate-friendly way.
