UNRSC Webinar - Ten Step Plan - proceedings are now available.

11 September 2020

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.

The webinar, which had 1252 registrations from 121 countries, brought together a range of international speakers:

  • Etienne Krug from the World Health Organization (WHO) introduced the UN Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC) and its work.
  • Jean Todt, UN Special Envoy for Road Safety, shared a video message putting the Ten Step plan into global context.
  • Susanna Zammataro from the International Road Federation (IRF) shared an overview of the the Safer Roads and Mobility Group within the UNRSC, emphasising the Group’s focus on initiatives that improve safety for all road users: pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and vehicle occupants.
  • Rob McInerney of the International Road Assessment Program (iRAP) explained how the Ten Step Plan provides a blueprint for how countries can put in place the systems and build capacity to achieve Global Road Safety Performance Targets 3 and 4.
  • Romain Hubert of the United National Road Safety Fund (UNSRF) described the Fund’s program of support for safety initiatives around the world, including the first practical implementation of the Ten Step Plan in Tanzania.
  • Robert Lisinge from the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) shared further details on the pilot project in Tanzania, the first country to implement the Ten Step Plan.
  • Veronica Raffo from the World Bank shared examples of successful World Bank and Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) safety projects and introduced a GRSF / UNRSF partnership project that will help evaluate the Ten Step Plan in Tanzania.
