About the Meeting
The International Road Federation (IRF) was pleased to present at and support this important meeting hosted online on 30 November by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the African Union Commission (AUC) in the context of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-20230.
The main objective of this meeting was to create awareness around the Africa’s post-2020 Strategic Directions for Road Safety and the African Road Safety Action Plan 2021-2030. These documents will support AU member States in developing or updating their national road safety strategies, taking into consideration national specificities and the recommendations of the Global Plan for the 2021-2020 Road Safety Decade.
More specifically, the objectives of the meeting were:
- Share best practices with AU member States to mainstream the Global and Continental Action Plans in their national frameworks.
- Define the fundamentals for improving road safety at the national level.
- Stimulate the debate on the way forward after the African Road Safety Charter enters into full force,
- Promote the African Road Safety Observatory (ARSO).
