142 National Societies provide feedback on road safety work

Back to news

In 2014 GRSP conducted a mapping project involving 142 National Societies of Red Cross and Red Crescent to assess the capacity of National Societies to engage with road safety. The report document has now been launched at a series of events at the Geneva secretariat of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent.

The data presented in this document serves to provide the greatest-to-date level of visibility of the scope of work currently being undertaken in this field through the National Society and volunteer networks. It also serves as both a guide to the potential work that could be instigated, and a conduit for enhanced sharing and communication on matters of road safety between National Societies themselves, and with the Global Road Safety Partnership.

Amongst other findings, the report shows that whilst 70% of National Societies do carry out road safety interventions, 82% of National Societies expect to play an increasing role in road safety in the future. The report also looks at funding sources for National Society road safety work, private sector partnerships, shares case studies of good practice and more.
