AIP Foundation participated in the 2nd Global High-Level Conference on Road Safety through a resolution entitled “Improving Global Road Safety”. The Conference brought together over 1,500 participants from 150 countries, among them Ministers of Health, Cities, Transport, and Interior; senior officials from United Nations agencies; representatives of civil society; and business leaders.
The Conference was an opportunity for Member States to exchange information and experiences on best practices in road safety. Delegates reviewed progress in implementation of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and discussed how to achieve its stated goal. It is a unique moment to bring a new impetus to the Decade of Action at its mid-point – a time to reaffirm commitments and propose new strategies for the next five years, in light of the scenario that should emerge from discussions on the new Sustainable Development Goals.
