Uruguay - Montevideo
The Urban Pathways Implementation Tracker is tracking the Projects Progress
Urban Pathways has been working with Montevideo since September 2018, when city and national officials joined the Transport and Climate Change Week 2018 in Berlin and it was clear to the UP team that Montevideo could be a great partner city for the implementation of sustainable urban mobility projects. As a result of these initial discussions, a representative of the Public Transport Department of the Municipality of Montevideo joined the UP Action Planning Days in February 2019, where the first ideas for sustainable mobility solutions were discussed, which led to the e-mobility pilot project now being funded by SOL+. Moreover, more than 10 start-ups working on passenger and freight 2- and 3-wheel- ers have been identified and will participate in the SOL+ call for innovators. All this building on the work conducted by the MOVÉS project (GEF 7 project) that has been promoting the integration of e-buses, e-cargo-vehicles and e-taxis in Montevideo’s transport system. Finally, with regard to waste, the team is working jointly with Compost Ciudadano, a local NGO devoted to organic waste collection at the neighbourhood level, to fund the conversion of a diesel waste collection vehicle to electric. The Intendencia of Montevideo has participated in a webinar Organic waste treatment.
