Rob de Jong holds an Engineer’s Degree in Environmental Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Environmental Policy from the University of Nijmegen in The Netherlands. Prior to joining the United Nations he worked as a consultant and he worked for the Netherlands Government. In 1996 he joined UN-HABITAT to work for the joint UNEP/ UN-HABITAT Sustainable Cities Programme, supporting cities to develop their urban environmental planning and management capacities. In 1998 he joined UNEP to work on urban environment issues. In 2000 he became the Special Assistant for the Director of the Division of Policy Development and Law in UNEP. From 2002 to 2008 he set up and managed UNEP’s Urban Environment Unit. In 2008 Rob set up and headed the Transport Unit, which was later changed in the Sustainable Mobility Unit. The Unit is based at UNEP’s Headquarters in Nairobi.
The Unit’s work focuses on reducing the environmental impact of the transport sector, especially air pollution and climate emissions. It includes programs on cleaner fuels, cleaner and more efficient vehicles; non-motorised transport; clean busses, electric mobility, including electric 2&3 wheelers. The Unit is leading and implementing major global sustainable transport initiatives including the Partnership for Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV); the Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI); the Share the Road programme (StR), the Electric Mobility (eMob) programme, and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC).
