This month, AIP Foundation hosted two district-wide workshops to discuss the “Head Safe. Helmet On.” project in Cambodia supported by USAID with over 30 key stakeholders at each event.
District- and commune-level government officials were present at the workshops to learn about why the specific target districts were selected. “The targeted provinces of Phnom Penh, Kandal, and Kampong Speu for the “Head Safe. Helmet On.” project were selected by looking at road safety ‘black spots,’ which are the most dangerous locations for road users. Together, these three provinces made up nearly one third of motorcycle fatalities in 2010,” said Mr. Pagna Kim, AIP Foundation Cambodia Director.
Additionally, AIP Foundation defined stakeholders’ roles and responsibilities and discussed overall plans for the project.
