Grants to this Grantee
for improving urban mobility policies and air quality management in large Brazilian cities  
The Institute for Energy and Environment (IEMA) is the leading Brazilian organization in promoting sustainable transportation policies. IEMA’s transportation program focuses in two areas: urban mobility policies and air quality management. In mobility, given the fact that motorization in Brazilian cities is increasing rapidly as income rises, in the next two years IEMA will help municipalities to reduce individual motorized trips, improve transit systems and transit-oriented development, and implement parking reforms. A main expected result is the formal adoption by Sao Paulo of a low-carbon mobility policy aimed at reducing congestion, emissions, and criteria pollutants to levels recommended by the World Heath Organization.
