Colombian Transit-Oriented Development NAMA gains high-level support

With support from the Office of the President and key ministries,  the Colombian TOD NAMA is poised to transform Colombian cities by focusing urban development around transit stations, blending low-income and market-rate housing with commercial uses to create neighborhoods where people can safely walk, live, work, shop and play. The NAMA will link national funding for low-income housing and urban mass transit, cut GHG emissions, bolster the economy and create a 21st century model of urban development.
