In September 2020, the UN General Assembly adopted resolution A/RES/74/299 “Improving global road safety”, proclaiming the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030, with the ambitious target of preventing at least 50% of road traffic deaths and injuries by 2030. On October 28, 2021, the UN / WHO Global Plan for Road Safety – the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 has been officially launched.It aims to improve global road safety, setting the goal of reducing at least 50% of road fatalities and injuries by 2030 as an intermediate step towards Vision Zero by 2050. FEVR strongly supports the Global Plan believing that all member organizations can make a difference by offering their incomparable support towards achieving the overall plan.
FEVR together with all the associations of road victims raise their voices towards the institutions, leading them to put every possible effort in rethinking and redesigning the entire concept of traffic towards the achievement of the objective.
The Global Plan aligns with the Stockholm Declaration, by emphasizing the importance of a holistic approach to road safety, and calling on continued improvements in the design of roads and vehicles; enhancement of laws and law enforcement; and provision of timely, life-saving emergency care for the injured. The Global Plan also reflects the Stockholm Declaration’s promotion of policies to promote walking, cycling and using public transport as inherently healthy and environmentally sound modes of transport. Road victim organizations are essential to campaign and convey this message.
