Stockholm Declaration

19 February 2020

The Chairman’s conclusions, called the “Stockholm Declaration”, was presented by the Swedish Minister for Infrastructure, Mr.Tomas Eneroth, as the outcome document of the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety.

The global character of the road safety challenge calls for international cooperation and partnerships across many sectors of society. Given this, the Government of Sweden has worked to ensure broad stakeholder engagement around the Stockholm Declaration.

The Stockholm Declaration was prepared in close collaboration with the conference’s steering group. The Declaration went through an extensive consultation with WHO Member States through their permanent representations in Geneva, and a transparent and inclusive public consultation open to everybody around the world.

Building on the Moscow Declaration of 2009 and the Brasilia Declaration of 2015, UN General Assembly and World Health Assembly resolutions, the Stockholm Declaration is ambitious and forward-looking and connects road safety to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Stockholm Declaration also reflects the recommendations of the conference’s Academic Expert Group and its independent and scientific assessments of progress made during the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and its proposals for a way forward.
