National Sustainable Mobility
Strategy and Programme for
Climate Change Mitigation and
Adaptation in Chile

Implemented by

giz mu


To support Chile's international commitments in the transport sector by generating a National Sustainable Mobility Strategy with intersectoral lines of action and a National Urban Mobility Programme to finance regional sustainable mobility initiatives

Challenges in the region

  • Transport is the activity with the second highest emissions in Chile, with GHG emissions at 30.9%
  • In the last 10 years, private transport has grown by up to 7.3% in Chile's regions; public transport and active mobility have decreased by up to 5%.
  • Due to its geographical conditions, the country has an unbalanced demographic distribution: 83% of the population lives in eight of the 16 regions and 40% lives in the metropolitan region
  • This leads to a variation of cities with diverse challenges in terms of mobility and access to opportunities and different government capacities for dealing with these problems

Expected results


National Sustainable Mobility Strategy

Support the fulfilment of the NDC through the Long-Term Strategy from the transport sector. Generate a governance model for the promotion of sustainable mobility. Strengthen technical capacities in multiple sectors

National Urban Mobility Programme for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation

This will allow the systematising, organising, and financing of sustainable mobility initiatives so that the regions themselves can design and implement their own Mobility Plans to achieve Chile's commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement 2015 and its update in 2020-2021
