Building on Success in Africa – GRSP Africa Seminar Dates Announced: September 4-5, 2013

Back to news

Working to improve data management systems and promote effective pedestrian safety interventions in cities are two critical milestones that require special attention as countries strive towards the realization of the goals of the Decade of Action for Road Safety.

To this end, the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) and the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Programme (SSATP) – two organizations that embrace the notion of a world free of road car crash death and injury – collaborated in 2012 to co-host a sub-regional ‘Road Safety in Cities’ conference in Lusaka, Zambia.

Key outcomes of the conference: that city planning and development should be guided by the fundamental principle to move people efficiently and safely; and identifying the need to create regional groups of practitioners, using the existing structure of the Regional Economic Communities (RECs), for the purpose of knowledge sharing, have served to drive the activities of participating countries well into 2013.

Building on the success of this conference and to further develop the work underway as a result, GRSP and SSATP proudly announce this year’s Africa Seminar, ‘Moving People Safely in Cities’. The seminar is to be held over two days, September 4 and 5, at the United Nations Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The event is expected to again see delegates from all over Africa and experts from around the world convene to identify and develop strategies toward making cities safer for vulnerable road users.

Links to registration details will be posted in the near future.

Together we can save millions of lives.
