Renewed commitment from the FIA Foundation

18 January 2017

The FIA Foundation has renewed multi-year grant agreements with major road safety partners in a concerted push towards the 2020 Sustainable Development Goals target to halve global road traffic deaths and injuries.

Partners include Global NCAP, the winner of the  2016 Premier Prince Michael International Road Safety Award. In Latin America, Latin NCAP’s independent crash tests have dramatically changed the political and media conversation on vehicle safety, and sparked a trend to safer four and five star cars being produced on the continent.

Other partners include: the International Road Assessment Programme(iRAP);  the FIA and its global network of automobile clubs; and regional road traffic injury NGOs Amend (Sub-Saharan Africa); AIP Foundation (SE Asia); the Eastern Alliance for Safe & Sustainable Transport (Eastern Europe & Central Asia); and the Fundacion Gonzalo Rodriguez (Latin America). The agreements will enable these organisations to maintain momentum in the efforts to reach the SDG Health target 3.6 for road safety. For many of these NGOs, the FIA Foundation provides vital core funding.

We are most grateful to the Foundation for its ongoing support for The Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards and for supporting a wide range of NGOs and initiatives around the world.
