New Collaboration for Safer Roads

4 March 2015

A new coalition of organisations advocating for ‘minimum 3 star’ road infrastructure safety for all road users in developing countries has been established.

The ‘Three Star Coalition’, coordinated by the Fund for Global Health, aims to influence policy and engineering practice in multilateral development banks (MDBs), development agencies and national highway authorities in a push to promote safer road infrastructure design.

The coalition, which also includes the FIA Foundation, the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP), AAA, and a number of other US-based highway safety organisations, is currently focusing on building US Congressional awareness and support for required stated minimum safety performance outcomes in all World Bank-financed road loans.
