New Governance Structure


A new governance structure for the initiative will become effective on July 1, 2018.

In January 2017, 50 leading organizations and agencies in the transport sector, convened at the World Bank HQ in Washington DC and committed to supporting transport policies and systems that would transform mobility on a global scale.


So far, the initiative has been governed by an interim structure consisting of a Steering Committee of 10 members representing multilateral development banks, UN agencies/programmes, bilateral donors and global civil society organizations and a Consortium of 50 leading organizations in the transport sector.


With the initiative now well established and recognized in the international community, SuM4All members agreed to transition towards a permanent structure. Four principles will guide the process:


Participation & Representation of stakeholders most relevant to deliver effectively on the functions of SuM4All;


Transparency in decision making and implementation;


Focus on the achievement of the 4 global goals, across all modes of transportation to reflect the uniqueness of this platform;


Cost Effectiveness; with an ability to attract financial resources to sustain its functions over the next 4 years.


This new governance structure will consist of the following:


Steering Committee

15 seats for leading actors committed to position sustainable mobility as a top priority in the global development agenda, enhance coordination and collaboration among member organizations and encourage the exchange of knowledge and best practices. Subsequent to the hosting of competeitive elections in May, the membership of the Steering Committee from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2020 has been finalized. Download TOR
