Globally, the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 has engaged an ever-increasing number of partners from governments, international agencies, civil society organizations, foundations and the private sector. The challenge is to enhance this collaboration to include a greater number of sectors of society and build their capacities to further achievement of not only the Sustainable Development Goals directly linked to road safety, but also the entire 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. A new level of commitment and investment is needed, which is built on a shared vision and goals for the future of the planet.
Aims of the session:
- Illustrate achievements made in road safety in recent years through international collaboration across sectors.
- Identify the broader range of partners needed to accelerate progress on evidence-based road safety policies and programmes.
- Define how a greater level of commitment and investment would help achieve many of the Sustainable Development Goals.
- Identify key priorities for the next decade.
