What We Do

Strategic Objective & Targets and Business Model 2023-2026

Leveraging the consolidated niche, credibility and reputation that SLOCAT has acquired since our creation in 2009, over the next four years we aim to take our impact to the next level by being a daring, bold, constructive and solutions-oriented enabler.

We are maintaining co-creation, co-leadership and co-delivery across knowledge, advocacy and dialogue activities as our foundational approach. This approach builds on our strength as a respected, neutral, inclusive convener of a multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder ecosystem of change-makers. 

Areas of Intervention

Over 2023 – 2026, we are focusing our efforts on four critical interrelated areas where we can have the most impact in these changing times, namely: 1. Policy and Legislation; 2. Economics for Transport, 3. Global Governance and 4. Community of Change Agents.These areas of intervention are essential elements of the required transport transformations as set out in the SLOCAT Theory of Change.

SLOCAT Theory of Change

The SLOCAT Strategic Development Plan 2023-2026 conveys the sharpening of our impact towards turning the greatest transport, sustainability and climate change challenges that our societies are experiencing into opportunities for systemic transformations. To continue powering the sustainable, low carbon transport revolution with ambition, solutions and collaboration for the people and the planet; this Plan outlines the vision and thematic areas of intervention of SLOCAT for the coming years. In doing so, it introduces the first ever SLOCAT Theory of Change as a compass for our work and is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Building upon the strengths and distinctiveness of SLOCAT, 2023-2026 strategic objective, targets, business model and organisational enablers are traced. With all these elements, this Plan aims at providing SLOCAT Partners, donors, supporters and secretariat with a clear and coherent multi-annual horizon.

The SLOCAT Strategic Development Plan 2020-2022

This Strategic Development Plan 2020-2022 builds upon and consolidates the impact achieved by the SLOCAT Partnership; as well as the values that have governed us over the years. At the same time, this Plan proposes shifts to our business model, outlines our intended impacts and objectives for the next three years and lands them in specific catalytic themes and cross-cutting lenses for work at different levels of intensity. It also defines a series of organisation enablers that will nourish our capacity to deliver. In so doing, this Strategic Plan demonstrates one of the defining features of our Partnership: Our ability to evolve within the wider transport landscape, while preserving our recognised flexibility to punch above our weight and retaining focus on our mission of powering the sustainable, low carbon transport revolution with ambition, solutions and collaboration.

The adoption of this Plan 2020-2022 marks an exciting moment in the life of our Partnership, as we trace institutional, thematic and organisational pathways fit for the SLOCAT of the next decade.
