The Second Annual Conference for Road Safety in Cambodia brought together policy makers, concerned government bodies, non-governmental organizations, private sector, media, and road safety advocates in support of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Over 350 delegates convened at Himawari Hotel in Phnom Penh on September 4-5, 2019, to discuss practical strategies, exchange information, and participate in breakout sessions to review current road safety plans, and share their recommendations for the future of road crash prevention. The conference was hosted by AIP Foundation and the Coalition for Road Safety (CRY), in coordination with the National Road Safety Committee (NRSC).
The key focus and theme centered on addressing Cambodia’s “Eight Pillars” of Road Safety: safe road users, safe infrastructure, better road management, safer vehicles, improved emergency medical assistance, law amendment and enforcement, expansive driver licensing and management, and evaluation of passenger and goods transport services.
