Global Meeting of Regional Road Safety Observatories

14 November 2020

The Global Meeting of Regional Road Safety observatories will take place between the 8-9 December 2020.

This virtual global conference is being organized by the regional road safety observatories in Africa (ARSO), Asia-Pacific (APRSO) and Ibero-America (OISEVI), with the support of international development organizations, including the World Bank, the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Transport Forum (ITF) and the Fédération Internationale de l' Automobile (FIA) who have been collaborating on the development of these observatories to improve availability and quality of road safety data since in 2018. 

Effective action can only be taken if it is targeted and measured with accurate data: good data are a necessary -albeit not sufficient- condition for the design and implementation of good road safety policies. ln turn, having accurate data requires the development of transparent and rigorous collection methods. It is essential that these collection methods converge into standard international criteria and have stability in time, thus allowing for comparisons in space -across countries- and in time. Regional observatories in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Ibero-America are developing through work programs to improve road safety data management in their member countries. Other regions are expressing interest in this subject too, for example the EaP and the Balkans. The history and experience from the European Union long-established road safety observatory (ERSO) can bring considerable contribution to these discussion.
