The International Road Federation and iRAP hosted a United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC) webinar on the Ten Step Plan for Safer Road Infrastructure.
The Ten Step Plan was produced by the UNRSC Safer Roads and Mobility Group partners to provide a clear process for establishing systems, building capacity and creating partnerships to support implementation of the UN Convention on Road Traffic and Road Signs and Signals and achievement of the UN Member States Agreed Global Targets 3 and 4 for safer new and existing roads.
