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.

Grants to this Grantee
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.
