Public Policies in the Country
In 2021, the government of Sebastián Piñera, through the Roads and Urban Transport Program (SECTRA) of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications, launched its National Strategy for Sustainable Mobility (ENMS), a public policy document that includes the vision, objectives and measures to articulate the different actors involved in this area.
The project was launched with the goal that by 2050, Chile will have transportation systems and urban development that together allow sustainable and fair mobility in cities.
The plan is supported by EUROCLIMA+, a cooperation program on environmental sustainability and climate change between the European Union and Latin America. Its objective is to reduce the impact of the climate crisis and its effects, promoting mitigation and adaptation to global warming, resilience and investment.
