Country Guidelines

15 December 2009

The recently published World Bank Global Road Safety Facility guidelines promote a Safe System approach to road safety and specify a management and investment framework to support the successful implementation of the World Report recommendations. They include practical procedures designed to accelerate knowledge transfer and sustainably scale up country investment to improve road safety results. They set out detailed steps for the conduct of country road safety management capacity reviews and the related specification of lead agency reforms, investment strategies and Safe System projects designed to overcome revealed safety management capacity weaknesses.

The guidelines are now available on - line through gTKP
