The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) team is immensely proud to have our work developing road safety partnerships endorsed within the United Nations General Assembly Resolution, ‘Improving Global Road Safety’.  We particularly wish to acknowledge the enduring support and encouragement of our members, major donors, Bloomberg Philanthropies and Fondation Botnar and our host, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Dave Cliff, CEO of the GRSP said, “We believe that the resolution’s announcement of a Second Decade of Action for Road Safety and a renewed target of halving global road deaths by 2030 sends a powerful message to communities everywhere that we can not continue to tolerate current levels of road trauma.”

GRSP is enormously encouraged by the specific references to the importance of the ‘UN Sustainable Development Goals’ and by applying road safety countermeasures that are proven to work, such as those explained within the outstanding WHO publication ‘Save lives: a road safety technical package’ we can make an enormous contribution to the safety of ordinary people.
