Description/achievement of initiative

Stabilization and reduction in the forecast level of road traffic fatalities around the world by 2020. The UNECE’s goals for the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety, 2011-2020 are: (1) to ensure the widest possible geographical coverage of United Nations Road Safety Conventions and Agreements; (2) to assist countries in the ECE region and beyond in implementing the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety; and (3) to make progress in stabilizing and reducing road traffic fatalities in the ECE region and beyond.

Implementation methodologies

We will achieve our commitment by promoting the accession to or greater consistency between United Nations Road Safety Conventions and Agreements, and regional/national laws (as relevant to respective countries); conducting analytical work which supports the development of legal instruments and explores emerging challenges that require governments to take common action; as well as providing technical assistance and capacity building to help countries better implement international transport legislation and also in their road safety endeavours generally. Detailed information may be found in our UNECE Plan to implement the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, 2011-2020 (http://www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/doc/2012/itc/ECE-TRANS-2012-4e.pdf) and corrigenda (http://www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/doc/2012/itc/ECE-TRANS-2012-4Corr1e.pdf and http://www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/doc/2012/itc/ECE-TRANS-2012-4Corr2e.pdf).
