CITA member of the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road SafetyDaniele D'Onofrio
This collection of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) implements programs and lobby for road safety initiatives around the world. Its members are often set up by everyday citizens responding to needs they see around them. Those NGOs can fill government gaps by providing immediate solutions, or they can influence decision making through advocacy and education. They play a vital role in the growing worldwide movement to reduce the devastating effects of traffic injuries. With interventions based on evidence for what works, its NGOs helps save lives.
The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety was established in response to demand from NGOs worldwide for a forum where they can share knowledge and collectively advocate for road safety and the rights of victims of road traffic crashes. The Alliance provides services to its members in three key areas: 1) networking and sharing, 2) advocacy, and 3) capacity building.
Every two years, the Alliance organizes the Global Meeting of Nongovernmental Organizations Advocating for Road Safety and Road Victims, where members meet, participate in training workshops on key topics like fund-raising, research, monitoring and evaluation, and project management.
The Alliance was established in 2012 by NGO members of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC) and currently represents more than 140 member NGOs working in road safety from more than 70 countries around the world.
Together we act to make roads safer for all and advocate for road victims’ rights.
