CITA & GRSFDaniele D'Onofrio
We are glad to announce that a collaboration agreement was signed by CITA and the GRSF: CITA is now member of their board.
The Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF), as the most experienced development bank global road safety fund, ensures donor funding catalyzes action for saving lives and sustained results. The GRSF is a partnership & funding platform assisting the global road safety agenda by implementing road safety reforms, including through technical assistance, knowledge products, and a comprehensive leveraging of road safety infrastructure financing.
Launched in 2006, it has initiated and carried out a large range of road safety projects in more than 35 developing countries in all world regions.
Its program has three main objectives:
- Investing in Building Safety Management – focusing its efforts on implementing its Road Safety Management Capacity Review which lays out a comprehensive organizational and investment strategy for road safety;
- Interventions for Safer Outcomes – investing in helping countries establish vehicle inspection stations to ensure stronger occupant protection through regulations;
- Research for Results – working to uncover the economic costs of road safety in order to inform decision-making.
This strategic plan for 2013-2020 reaffirms the GRSF’s mission and sets out how it will contribute to the decade of action, leveraging the global expertise of the World Bank, and working in close collaboration with donors and partners.
GRSF’s work has strongly contributed to positive road safety outcomes in many low- and middle-income (LMICs) countries around the world.
