|Held on September 29th, the International Road Federation, together with Qatar University, Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Center, National Traffic Safety Committee of Qatar Government and World Conference on Transport Research Society were pleased to host a Webinar on “Global Trends on the Status of Traffic Safety under the Covid-19 Pandemic”. While looking at the achievements of the Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020), this webinar also addressed impacts of Covid-19 on road safety and potential responses. |
This webinar discussed the outcomes of the last 10 years of international efforts led by the United Nations, the World Health Organization and many multisectoral partnerships to mitigate road traffic causalities and push to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goal of reducing deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 50%. Since we are approaching the end of the 2011-2020 Decade of Action for Road Safety, it was insightful to look back, measure achievements and identify challenges. Furthermore, this webinar addressed the potential impacts of the current Covid-19 Pandemic and the associated mobility restriction policies on road traffic safety status.
