Road Safety Research Consultant, Handicap International

11 September 2008

Handicap International is an international solidarity organisation that works alongside people with disabilities, offering them assistance and supporting them in their efforts to become self-reliant.

Currently, more than 4 persons die and 75 are injured daily on the roads of Cambodia. Over 90% of accidents are caused by human error, notably speed, drink-driving, dangerous overtaking and general violations of the traffic law. Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable in Cambodia, with 72% of road traffic casualties involving motorcycle riders. To counteract this growing disaster, the Royal Government of Cambodia, along with the nongovernmental organizations and the private sector, are implementing a National Road Safety Action Plan, encompassing road safety education, traffic law enforcement, safety engineering and emergency response systems.

Handicap International Belgium (HIB), is seeking a qualified and motivated person to fulfill the position of Road Safety Research Consultant, for the sociological analysis of the road safety situation in Cambodia, on historical, cultural and political aspects. The position is based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, with regular travels to provinces as necessary, and should be started at the beginning of November, 2008. For further information on the job announcement please visit their website.
