iRAP: Building capacity and empowering professionals

10 July 2019

Following the creation of the UN Targets 3 & 4, and the release of the WHO Global Status Report on Road Safety last year, it is critical that we rapidly build the skills of engineers, auditors and professionals able to undertake iRAP assessments.

We have to scale up safer road infrastructure for all road users on an unprecedented level if we are going to help the world reduce the 1.35 million road traffic deaths worldwide every year.
