Data Collection at the Centre of Jamaica's Plan

17 April 2013

During his recent visit to Jamaica, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, Patron of The Commission for Global Road Safety visited the Mona Geoinformatice Institute within The University of The West Indies. The Institute is at the centre of an initiative run by The Road Safety Unit of Jamaica’s Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, and is seen as a pioneer, leading the way on road crash data collection in the Caribbean. It is at the centre of a twinning initiative involving the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) on behalf of the United Kingdom government and has the financial support and of the Inter American Development Bank (IDB).

Recently, more than 70 delegates from six Caribbean countries – Barbados, Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Belize and Guyana- participated in a one-day workshop organised by the IDB to review  the project. The main components involve a comprehensive review of how data relevant for road safety analyses are currently collected, stored and analysed in Jamaica, and how they are then used to influence road safety strategies and interventions.
