Agenda for the Third Ministerial Conference on Road Safety announced

27 September 2019

The preliminary program for the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety has been released. The conference will be held in Sweden on 19th - 20th February 2020 and its theme is Achieving Global Goals.

The conference is extremely important because it marks the end of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2010 (Decade of Action). In the lead up to the event, NGOs have been encouraging and preparing their government ministers to take part and show they are serious about reducing road deaths and injuries by 50% in their countries.

The program will provide world leaders from more than 80 countries an opportunity to share their country’s progress on the Global Plan for the Decade of Action 2011–2020, identify ways to link road safety to other sustainability challenges, accelerate action on proven life-saving strategies, and plan the future strategy for global road safety. The Alliance and other civil society organizations have been pushing for the 2020 target to reduce road deaths and injuries will be extended to 2030 and it is anticipated that this will be agreed at the conference.
