The GRSP’s Road Map 2016-2020 was coming to an end and work had begun to develop the next strategic plan for the period from 2021 to 2025. The process of consulting our members on important future focus areas and holding workshops with GRSP staff to gather input on the future direction of the GRSP was well underway during late 2019.
Because of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the global uncertainties created, the GRSP’s Executive Committee elected to approve an Interim Strategic Plan for 2021, to allow time for the impact of the pandemic to become clearer and for planning to proceed.
Over the course of 2021, earlier input was re-considered, and further input was sought from our members and the GRSP team. The information obtained together with an assessment of global trends and road safety focused developments were combined to inform the GRSP Strategic Plan 2022 to 2030.
Several important themes emerged during the plan’s development which included the need for GRSP to continue to:
- Base programmes on the ‘Safe System’ approach and the ‘Vision Zero’ philosophy, that has at its foundation that no one should be killed or seriously injured using the road transport system.
- Link road safety to the sustainability agenda and highlight GRSP’s contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
An essential component of every organization and any strategic plan is the need to continue to recognise trends, capture lessons that are learned from programme implementation, appreciate the implications of change and adapt accordingly.
Through the Strategic Plan 2022 to 2030, GRSP will continue to monitor global developments and ensure our programmes remain relevant and effective.
