Promoters of Global Road Safety
Global Road Safety
In May we brought to your attention one of the largest and strongest actions for Global Road Safety - The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 - a worldwide campaign in which leaders and governments, international agencies, civil society organizations and private companies from more than 100 countries are actively involved. Frotcom, as a signatory of the European Road Safety Charter, who is a key supporter of the Decade, is a loyal promoter of this campaign to ensure that the vision of the Decade of action becomes a reality. One of the major events that are part of the Decade will take place in June 2012 when world leaders will meet in Rio de Janeiro for the Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development to identify challenges and agree new priorities for the international community. Trends identified in Rio and decisions taken will define international action on the environment, development and public health priorities. Tackling global road traffic injury is prioritized too. Safer Roads @ Rio+20' is an initiative led by the Make Roads Safe campaign, building on the momentum of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety to broaden the coalition supporting action to prevent 5 million road deaths by 2020. Here is one useful suggestion for how you can influence the agenda of the event: Join the debate on the agenda for Rio+20 on Twitter @UN_Rioplus20 and on Facebook. In the end, the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020 is actually everybody’s Decade.
