United Nations Environment Programme

The Toolkit for Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) Revised (2014) is used as a starting point for the present toolkit.

The toolkit has a specific focus on cities in less-developed and developing countries where significant infrastructure will be built to cater to a growing transportation demand and, therefore, land-use and transport policies can play an important role in shaping mobility demand and mode choice.
