At GRSP we strongly believe that there is no one single answer to solving the global road safety challenge. One very powerful approach is that of using multi-sector partnerships to create sustainable change in road safety results and reduction in fatalities and injuries from road crashes.
For this reason, GRSP creates and support multi-sector road safety partnerships that are engaged with front-line good practice road safety interventions in countries and communities around the world.
We work with members and partners to develop and implement local and global initiatives that reflect internationally recognized best practices in road safety.
