Government officials and stakeholder gather for the launch of Safety Delivered in Cambodia.

More than 50 government officials and relevant stakeholders attended an introductory workshop to celebrate the launch of the new road safety program, Safety Delivered, in Cambodia. Safety Delivered, a program supported by The UPS Foundation, will work with young, inexperienced motorcycle drivers in target universities and communities to improve their unsafe and distracted driving behaviors while also working to increase child helmet use at primary schools. In Cambodia, 1,852 people died in road crashes in 2016, with young people aged 15 to 29 accounting for 45% of these fatalities.

At the event, AIP Foundation signed implementation agreements with representatives from three of the program universities, including Royal University of Phnom Penh, Asia Europe University, and Phnom Penh International University. The workshop was also an opportunity for Safety Delivered to discuss its implementation plan with the gathered stakeholders in an effort to receive feedback and recommendations.
