Powerful new partnership launched between iRAP and ITF

21 August 2017

iRAP and the International Transport Forum (ITF) have taken a big step forward in the battle against road deaths and serious injuries with the signing of a new partnership agreement.

The two world leaders in transport policy and road safety signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) at the ITF’s Annual Summit of Ministers in Leipzig, Germany. The MOU will see the two organisations working closely together on road safety issues .

The ITF/iRAP MOU promotes policies that support the achievement of transport-related UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The five-year agreement focuses on contributing to the halving of road deaths and injuries by 2020 (SDG 3.6); making cities safe and sustainable (SDG 11.2); and unlocking the full potential benefits of investment in transport infrastructure (SDG 9).
