Major Ghanaian cities are at a critical point that will determine whether they become an engine of or a burden on the country’s development. Ghana’s urban areas contribute to more than two-thirds of the country’s gross national product, and cities will continue to grow rapidly, especially those other than capital cities.

This publication showcases 100 projects and programs tackling climate change and its impacts on people and the environment in cities across Asia and the Pacific.

As part of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) Preparer Forum for the Automotive sector, BMW, Daimler, General Motors, LeasePlan, Mahindra Group and Volkswagen share examples, learnings and reflections on how they are implementing the TCFD recommendations and responding to climate-related risks and opportunities.

This report uses the latest research on mobility trends to chart the changes in urban mobility needed for a rapid but realistic return and lock-in of the record low air pollution levels of March and April 2020.

Since the first EV City Casebook was released in 2012, cities around the world have overseen huge changes in mobility. Electric cars, buses, and taxis have rapidly increased in numbers, moving beyond early pilots and trials. New forms of micromobility and smartphone-based transport systems have grown in popularity.

The demand for mobility will grow significantly in the coming years, but our urban transportation systems are at their limits. Increasing digitalization and data sharing in urban mobility can help governments and businesses to respond to this challenge and accelerate the transition toward sustainability.

There is increasing recognition that women experience mobility differently from men. A growing body of literature documents the differences in men and women’s mobility patterns.

Paratransit (also known as informal or semiformal public transport) is a dominating force in urban transport systems today. In many parts of the world, primarily lower- and middle-income countries (LICs & MICs), paratransit provides crucial access to jobs, goods, and services.
