Antofagasta's Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) will bring together all the city's existing initiatives and plans, as well as incorporating new initiatives giving them a common vision and objectives for more sustainable mobility focused on people's well-being

Challenges in the region

  • 21% of CO2 emissions come from land transport; current mobility plans do not contain criteria for their reduction
  • Public transport and active mobility are not prioritised over private transport, which generates 47% of CO2 emissions
  • Current mobility does not have a gender perspective that would allow a more equitable city
