17 December, 2015



This study describes the Sustainable Mobility 2.0 multi-stakeholder approach as carried out in Indore (India) to develop a holistic sustainable mobility plan that addresses the mobility issues prioritized by the city. Indore is one of the 6 showcase cities having collaborated with SMP2.0.

  • The project has brought together a cross-sector group of multinational mobility-related companies to work with city officials and local stakeholders, including the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and citizens.
  • The collaboration follows a series of steps encompassing an in-depth assessment of Indore’s current state of mobility and its economic constraints, the development of sustainable mobility indicators and the identification of potential integrated solutions.
  • The process relies on SMP2.0 developed tools such as a set of sustainable mobility indicators and a best practices and enablers toolbox.

This study is part of ICLEI-WBCSD joint report “Innovative city-business collaboration – Emerging good practice to enhance sustainable urban development”, which looks at six initiatives around the world that aspire to facilitate city-business collaboration with holistic, multi-stakeholder approaches.
