India - Sustainable Urban Transport Project (English)

The objective of the Sustainable Urban Transport Project is to promote environmentally sustainable urban transport in India and to improve the usage of environment friendly transport modes through demonstration projects in selected cities. The project includes the following components: component one provides technical assistance to the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) to improve the national, state and local capacity to implement the capacity building elements and the public and non-motorized transport related aspects of national urban transport policy; and component two supports design and implementation of demonstration projects in six participating cities (in five states), which will create models of sustainable transport solutions for other Indian cities to replicate. The six cities, selected by Government of India (GOI) through a competitive selection process, include Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad (in Maharashtra), Naya Raipur (in Chhattisgarh), Jalandhar (in Punjab), Indore (in Madhya Pradesh), and Mysore (in Karnataka). The global environment facility (GEF) grant will finance technical assistance activities under the component one and component two. The recipient and participating stated cities will finance other project activities (including civil works) by utilizing Jawharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) grant and other sources of funds (including an International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) loan being processed under a parallel loan project for three cities: Pune, Pimpri-Chinwad, and Naya Raipur).
