Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020
In order to prepare for the Decade, the UN Road Safety Collaboration has developed a draft global Plan for the Decade with input from many partners. The draft Plan is currently being revised based on comments received to date. It provides an overall framework for activities which may take place in the context of the Decade. The categories or “pillars” of activities are: building road safety management capacity; upgrading the safety of road infrastructure; further developing the safety of vehicles; enhancing the behaviour of road users; and improving emergency services. Indicators are being developed to measure progress in each of these areas. Governments, international agencies, civil society organizations, the private sector and other stakeholders are invited to make use of the Plan as a guiding document for the events and activities they will support as part of the Decade.
The launch is scheduled for 11 may 2011 with many activities around the world.
