Strongest commitment ever from UN Member States

3 May 2016

Story from the Global Alliance of NGOs for road safety.

On 15th April 2016, the UN General Assembly and its Member States adopted a resolution on “Improving global road safety.” The resolution represents the strongest ever commitment on road safety made by UN Member States. The resolution supports the ambitious road safety targets now included in the Global Goals for Sustainable Development and also the Global Plan of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020) which provides an integrated and holistic framework for road injury prevention. The resolution renews its call on governments to take a leading role in implementing the road safety-related SDG targets and the activities of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020.
