New York, USA (13 April 2018). We are really proud to announce that CITA was admitted in the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC), during their 25th meeting celebrated last Friday in the UN headquarters in New York.
This Collaboration is a consultative mechanism whose members are committed to road safety efforts and in particular to the implementation of the recommendations of the World report on road traffic injury prevention.
The main objective of the collaboration is to facilitate international cooperation and to strengthen global and regional coordination among UN agencies and other international partners to implement UN General Assembly resolutions and the recommendations of the world report thereby supporting country programs.
The Global Plan for the Decade developed by the UNRSC is encouraging countries to adopt more effective policies for road injury prevention. Their meetings bring together a powerful coalition of UN agencies, development banks, researchers, non-government organizations, philanthropies and private sector companies.
We are looking forward to collaborate with all UNRSC stakeholder in order to improve road safety worldwide.
More about the UNRSC
In April 2004, the UN General Assembly resolution A/RES58/289 on “Improving global road safety” invited WHO, working in close cooperation with the UN regional commissions, to act as coordinator on road safety issues across the UN system. The World Health Assembly accepted this invitation in May 2004 and WHO subsequently set up the UN Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC) which holds biannual meetings to discuss global road safety issues.
