The Asian Development Bank (ADB), Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) and International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) are pleased to again be working in partnership to bring you Asia Pacific Road Safety 2015. This comprehensive capacity building event provides you with a range of stimulating workshops, keynote addresses and plenary sessions and will be held at the ADB headquarters in Manila, Philippines from 28-30 April 2015.
The event website is now open for registrations, though numbers are strictly limited, so be quick to express your interest in attending.
Asia Pacific Road Safety 2015 will focus on some of the serious gaps in road safety in countries across the Asia Pacific region. There will also be a SaveKidsLives activity to reinforce the importance of child road safety, which was the theme at our event last year, in preparation for this year’s Global Road Safety Week in early May.
The event’s key objectives are to:
- provide capacity building opportunities to participants on evidence-based good practice in road safety
- stimulate support for and action in the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020
- develop networks to support information, good practice and knowledge sharing
Key representatives from Asian countries attend the seminar, including:
- senior government officials, from road safety, transport, health, police and education
- road safety researchers and experts
- representatives of NGO’s working in road safety in the region
- business representatives with an interest in road safety.
On both Day One and Two of the event (28-29 April 2015) there will be half-day workshop programmes as well as keynote addresses and plenary sessions. On Day Three of the event (30 April 2015) iRAP will run a full day workshop and GRSP will run a half-day workshop. Further details can be found in the Programme area of the website.
Asia Pacific Road Safety 2015 is possible because of the generous support from the Global Road Safety Initiative (GRSI) programme and its partners (Michelin, Shell, Total and Toyota), and from the FIA Foundation. The organisers would also like to thank the Philippines Global Road Safety Partnership for their assistance in running this important event.
