The Stockholm Declaration will be presented as the final outcome document of the Ministerial Conference. All citizens and organizations are now invited to contribute to this consultation on the draft Stockholm Declaration.

An opportunity for delegates to share successes and lessons

At the request of the UN General Assembly, the Government of Sweden will host – in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) – the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety from 19-20 February 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden under the theme “Achieving Global Goals 2030”. National delegations led by ministers of transport, health, interior and other sectors are expected to attend from more than 100 countries, as well as representatives of international agencies, civil society organizations and the private sector.

The Ministerial Conference will be an opportunity for delegates to share successes and lessons from implementation of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020, chart future strategic directions for global road safety, and define ways to accelerate action on proven strategies to save lives. The Ministerial Conference will also provide an opportunity to link road safety to other sustainability challenges reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The “Stockholm Declaration”, will be presented by the Swedish Minister for Infrastructure as the final outcome document of the Ministerial Conference. Building on the Moscow Declaration of 2009 and the Brasilia Declaration of 2015 and UN General Assembly and World Health Assembly resolutions, the Stockholm Declaration will be ambitious and forward-looking and will connect road safety to implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Stockholm Declaration will also reflect the recommendations of the Academic Expert Group and its independent and scientific assessments of progress made during the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and its proposals for a way forward.
