Improving mobility to cope with rapid urbanisation

En 2018, un 70 % de los bolivianos vivían en las zonas urbanas, y las previsiones indican que la cifra aumentará a un 75 % para 2025 y a un 80 % para 2050. Esta rápida urbanización, que somete a presión a los sistemas de movilidad y agrava la contaminación atmosférica, reduce la calidad de vida y dificulta el acceso a los servicios públicos, afecta especialmente a las poblaciones vulnerables. Para construir una ciudad resiliente, inclusiva y sostenible, el PNUD está ayudando a Bolivia a rediseñar la vida urbana en su capital, La Paz. 

UNDP'S Response 

UNDP is working to deliver an innovative mobility strategy that rethinks the way public space is shared between pedestrians, motorised and non-motorised vehicles. The expected impact is to bring structural change in the mentality and behaviour around mobility – and make the city greener, more inclusive and sustainable. The work will include a multi-stakeholder platform to co-create solutions, strengthen capacities for sustainable urban mobility planning, boost digitalisation of public services and facilitate green entrepreneurship around these solutions. This comprehensive package builds on previous integrated support from UN agencies through which sustainable urbanisation was identified as an SDG accelerator.
