It is with great pride today that GRSP and Fondation Botnar officially launch the Botnar Child Road Safety Challenge; a new, global road safety grants initiative which will be managed by GRSP.
The Challenge is timely, it seeks to build on growing global recognition of population shifts to urban areas and the impact of urbanization on public health. The Challenge also sees cities – particularly small and mid-sized cities – as great potential agents of change and incubators for innovation. The Challenge is designed to fund projects which address locally relevant, child focused road safety problems with practical, innovative and evidence-based interventions. Applications for funding will be welcomed from multi-sectoral consortiums representing partners from government, civil society and the private sector to address road safety problems which impact children in India, Mexico, Romania, South Africa, Tunisia and Vietnam.
