A multi-stakeholder meeting with the UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety was held at the UN headquarters in Geneva on 1 October.
The consultation was jointly hosted by UNECE and the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety, and involved more than more than 40 NGOs from around the world. KNPO is a member of Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety. The meeting aimed to clarify objectives, develop working methods and provide an open and transparent forum for multi-stakeholder engagement in the global work on road safety.
An Action Plan was presented with the following four priorities:
- Promote global partnership to support the design and implementation of strategies and activities to improve road safety.
- Advocate with governments, civil society and the private sector for the promotion of road safety, particularly in countries with a high level or road fatalities and injuries.
- Participate in global and regional conferences and meetings on road safety.
- Advocate the accession to, and more effective implementation of, United Nations road safety legal instruments.
