Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020

22 November 2010

The international community is currently planning the global launch of the Decade for 11 May 2011.

The objectives of The Decade of Action are to:

  • draw attention to the impact of the global road safety crisis and the prospects for prevention
  • provide an opportunity for governments, international agencies, civil society organizations, the private sector and other stakeholders to announce their respective plans for the Decade

At the global level, a 24-hour "rolling" event will begin in the East and travel to the West across a one-day period. In each of the world's 24 time zones, one or several countries will take the lead in organizing a high-profile, media-oriented event.  It is hoped that heads of state and ministers from various sectors of society will show their commitment to scaling up road safety efforts.
