Tanzania 10 Step Plan: National Safer Road Infrastructure Workshop

March 16 March 18 CET

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Unlocking the potential of safer roads to save lives, save money and achieve the UN Global Road Safety Performance Targets is the focus of the “Ten Step Plan for Safer Road Infrastructure” project, which was selected by the United Nations Road Safety Fund (UNRSF) Steering Committee to be implemented by the IRF,  the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), iRAP, PIARC and TARA. Integrated with safe system action across all pillars, the “Ten Step Plan” will ensure that the global fatality and serious injury reduction targets are met by 2030.

The project aims to achieve this goal by taking action to build institutional capacity and regulatory frameworks in Tanzania to support UN Targets 3 and 4 in relation to safer road infrastructure.

This event is by invitation only.
