For EMBARQ India Mobility Innovation Project
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.

for electric mobility initiative in India
World Resources Institute (WRI) is actively engaged in various geographies to produce relevant e-mobility research and provide deep technical assistance that supports stakeholders in delivering results. WRI’s electric mobility initiative in India has been working extensively with the Indian government and various state governments on developing the EV ecosystem and contributing to India’s strengthened commitment to the e-mobility transition. This grant will allow WRI to continue to support this transition and work closely at the subnational level with state governments to support the planning and implementation of EV initiatives, provide necessary technical assistance and enable capacity development within government departments, and facilitate collaborations between public and private sector stakeholders.
