Overview
The mission of World Resources Institute's Sustainable urban mobility program (Embarq) is to implement policies that create more prosperous, livable cities. This grant will support WRI's Embarq India Mobility Innovation project. The goal is to catalyze enterprise-led solutions to problems of mobility and access in Indian cities. India's urban population will be about 600 million by 2030, and transportation is the fastest growing sector in carbon emissions. In addition to advocating for having good policies in place, WRI is proposing to work to scale up private sector innovation and addressing barriers for different transportation modes and providing low carbon options to millions of urban citizens.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Beijing Congestion Charging project  
The goal of the World Resources Institute’s Sustainable Cities Program in China is to ensure that cities drive economic opportunity, while mitigating pollution, sustaining natural resources, and improving quality of life. China is the largest carbon emitter in the world, and transport emissions are a significant part given the rapid urban and vehicle growth in cities. By 2030, transport will be 33 percent of China’s total carbon emissions. With this grant, the Institute will work on scaling up the Low Emissions Zone and Congestion Charging mechanisms in Beijing to 10-20 other cities in China. The instruments will contribute to solving three problems: air pollution, carbon emission, and traffic congestion.

The World Resources Institute will provide funding to Washington State to allow the governor to increase staff capacity to explore and advance state climate policies, strengthen collaboration on regional climate action with other Western states, and support a national partnership of governors working together toward state climate and clean energy goals.
