What we do

The IRF places its focus around 4 core pillars of activities: knowledge and expertise transfer and sharing; connecting people, businesses, and organisations; policy and advocacy; and data collection and dissemination.

Knowledge & Expertise

IRF fosters innovation and progress through different activities such as ad hoc workshops, training courses, webinars, and more.


IRF connects people, businesses, countries and organisations to exchange ideas, define solutions to common problems and forge partnerships that deliver.

Policy & Advocacy

IRF engages with decision-makers at every level to bring about positive change and advance the sustainable road transport and mobility agenda.

Data & Statistics

IRF provides insights into the sector by producing the World Road Statistics (WRS) and by facilitating use of data via the IRF Road Data Warehouse.

Released annually, the World Road Statistics includes data from over 200 countries on nearly every subject matter important to road and transport data.
