GRSP 20th Anniversary Event

/GRSP 20th Anniversary Event

The year 2019 sees the 20th anniversary of GRSP contribution to make roads safer for all users and to sustainably decrease road traffic death and injury.

As a programme of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the GRSP is a unique partnership of governments, civil society and the private sector with the mission of reducing road traffic death and injury globally.

Since the Partnership was established in 1999, we have gone on to make a profound contribution to road safety globally. Our 20th Anniversary Event will provide a rich opportunity to hear from road safety experts on the humanitarian crisis that road traffic death and injury represents and to be exposed to evidence-based solutions that are resulting in road trauma reduction.

This is also an opportunity to hear from our members about the benefits of membership of the GRSP that have resulted in long-standing commitments by a broad array of organizations committed to supporting road safety.
