Strong UK Delegation to attend the Stockholm Conference

30 January 2020

The 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety runs from from 19-20 February 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden under the theme “Achieving Global Goals 2030”.

UK will be sending a strong delegation led by Baroness Vere of Norbiton the road safety minister. It will join other national delegations led by ministers of transport, health, interior and other sectors as well as representatives of international agencies, civil society organizations and the private sector.

The Ministerial Conference will be an opportunity for delegates to share successes and lessons from implementation of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020, chart future strategic directions for global road safety, and define ways to accelerate action on proven strategies to save lives. The Ministerial Conference will also provide an opportunity to link road safety to other sustainability challenges reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

During the conference HRH Prince Michael of Kent will also be presenting The Commonwealth Road Safety Initiative to many delegates from across the world.

The “Stockholm Declaration”, will be presented by the Swedish Minister for Infrastructure as the final outcome document of the Ministerial Conference. Building on the Moscow Declaration of 2009 and the Brasilia Declaration of 2015 and UN General Assembly and World Health Assembly resolutions, the Stockholm Declaration will be ambitious and forward-looking and will connect road safety to implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Stockholm Declaration will also reflect the recommendations of the 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.
