Data as a force to shape future urban mobility. Bridging the data divide to shape a just digital transformation for climate-friendly urban mobility.
The sheer volume of data collected has grown exponentially. But particularly in developing and emerging
countries, major gaps in availability, quality and usability of data lead to a lack of significant resources
necessary to face the complex urban challenges. The Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI)
– funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) – believes
that for cities, data is a crucial enabler to make better as well as more informed decisions about sustainable
mobility. With the development of an Urban Mobility Data Hub, TUMI is working together with its
partners on making mobility data available for 40 cities in Africa, Latin America and Asia to shape the
digital transformation of urban mobility in a climate-friendly way.First published in: Internationales Verkehrswesen (74) Issue 1, 2022.
