The aim of this study is to identify the ways in which technical assistance programmes such as ELENA-EIB can help unlock investment in cities.

Sustainable Mobility for Citizens in Europe

CitiZEN

Efficient and effective urban mobility can significantly contribute to achieving sustainable economic growth and employment opportunities in our cities. It is of huge importance to achieving the EU 2020 objectives as 70% of the EU population live in cities and account for over 80% of the EU’s GDP. Moreover, in many urban areas, the increasing demand for urban mobility has created a non-sustainable environment with severe congestion, poor air quality and high levels of CO2 emissions.
