The advisory bodies (IAC and HLCC) together with members of the Steering Committee met in Stockholm.
Two advisory bodies are helping plan the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety – the International Advisory Committee and the High-level Consultative Committee. They met in Stockholm on 4–5 June, together with members of the Steering Committee. Previous meetings were held in Geneva and Paris.
Advice and continued planning
“At the meeting, presentations were interspersed with discussions. The aim was to give the advisory bodies an insight into the planning of the conference, and for them to provide advice about future work, primarily about programme content,” says Christer Hårrskog, Project Manager at the Swedish Transport Administration.
The International Advisory Committee is composed of representatives from Governments and IGOs.
The meeting was opened by Mattias Landgren, State Secretary to Sweden’s Minister for Infrastructure. Agenda points included a report from the Academic Expert Group with recommendations for continued road safety work up to 2030. The advisory bodies were also shown a draft conference programme and discussed the process of producing a declaration.
“The advisory bodies took a positive view of the conference concept, and we gained a lot of valuable input concerning the work ahead, which is very important to us,” says Mr Hårrskog.
Role of the advisory bodies
The role of the advisory bodies is to be responsible for advising the Steering Committee on the strategic orientations, programme and objectives for the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety.
