Britain committed to Moscow Declaration calling for a 'Decade of Action'

22 November 2009

Britain’s Road Safety Minister Paul Clark took a leading role at the First Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety held in Moscow from 19–20 November 2009

Over seventy ministers and heads of delegations as well as representatives of international, regional and sub-regional governmental and nongovernmental organizations including RoadSafe private sector bodies took part.

The core ambition of RoadSafe to support knowledge-sharing and build partnerships was echoed in the Moscow Declaration - A Time for Actionissued at the end of the conference – it recognized that the solution to the global road safety crisis can only be implemented through multi-sectoral collaboration and partnerships among all concerned in both public and private sectors, with the involvement of civil society.

Ministers agreed that they were: ‘ determined to build on existing successes and learn from past experiences’

Among the resolutions was one to encourage organizations to contribute actively to improving work-related road safety through adopting the use of best practices in fleet management.
