The team at SaveLIFE Foundation (India), one of the grantees of the Bloomberg Philanthropies funded Road Safety Grants Programme, has welcomed further success within the framework of their road safety advocacy campaign.
This week, on the back of exhaustive efforts to have road safety included as an election issue, the Indian National Congress party released its manifesto in which road safety has been identified as a key issue. This is the first time ever in India that a political party has clearly outlined its commitment to road safety.
The workshops form a part of the programme's efforts at creating long-term sustainability in improved enforcement techniques in Mexico, a country in which the targeted risk factors of seat-belt use and drink driving are at unacceptably low, and high rates respectively.
We are excited to inform the road safety community that we have confirmed dates for the 2014 GRSP AFRICA ROAD SAFETY SEMINAR:
Dates: 12-13 August, 2014 Venue: Cape Town, South Africa Theme: 'Safer Cities for Children'
This important event on the African road safety calendar will once again attract strong interest from key stakeholders including city planners, lead agency representatives, government, enforcement, private and civil sectors and will build upon the work of the 2012 and 2013 seminars.
Further details and registration details will be published here soon.
