The UN Road Safety Collaboration is pleased to announce that the Fourth UN Global Road Safety Week will be held from 8-14 May 2017. The Week will focus on speed and what can be done to address this key risk factor for road traffic deaths and injuries.
A global crisis requires a global effort
One of the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) targets (3.6) is to halve the global number of deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 2020. Yet nearly 3,500 people die on the road every day.
The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) brings together governments, civil society and businesses to address this humanitarian crisis.
GRSP works globally through a proven “public- private- civil society” partnership model to contribute to the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety.
Our organisation is a hosted programme of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
