Latin America CSO Network – Sustran Lac

ImageBesides local projects I-CE supports the organisation of networks for the exchange of information and know-how in the field of bicycle traffic. One of those networks is Sustran LAC, meant to support a growing number of organisations, groups and individuals in charge with sustainable transport in Latin America and the Caribbean region. Sustran LAC is to become a platform meant to share information and experience, ask questions, give answers and start discussions. Thus, individual organisations can assume stronger positions and have no need to invent everything anew. I-CE's support is also used to set up plans for the network to grow and remain independent.



Project support from I-CE to Sustran Lac May 2008 - January 2009
Sustran LAC's activities are coordinated by Ciudad Viva, an organisation set up in Santiago, the Chilean capital, in the nineteen nineties, in order to get more attention and space for cyclists and pedestrians. The fist step in the creation of the network has been the listing of all existing groups in Latin America interested in bicycle traffic. Secondly, a database has been set up with all available Spanish and Portuguese documents and other resources. A "mission statement" has also been issued with a short description of Sustran LAC's objectives.
