The goal of World Resources Institute’s Sustainable Urban Mobility program in India is to make cities more accessible, equitable, and livable. India’s urban population will be about 600 million by 2030, and transportation is the fastest growing sector contributing to carbon emissions. World Resources Institute is working to scale up private-sector innovation and remove barriers to safe, reliable, affordable, and low-carbon transportation options for millions of urban citizens. While focusing on transport, the program also addresses problems of air pollution, safety for women, road fatalities, unequal access to economic opportunities, traffic congestion, and urban sprawl.

for advancing the renewable energy private sector and international communication to green China’s overseas investment  
This project of the World Resource Institute seeks to support China in implementing its commitment to stop overseas coal financing to the fullest extent through realistic yet ambitious pathways. The institute will work with Chinese partners to build domestic regulatory safeguards to ensure that China fulfills its pledge on halting new coal abroad; diagnose the key barriers that impede China’s public and private investors from overseas investment in renewable energy, identifying pathways to address them; and foster deeper and more objective understanding of China’s support to BRI countries by reinforcing strategic communications and strengthened engagement in international events.
