The new UN Road Safety Fund newsletter is been released.
One of the key messages with this third newsletter is while the second half of 2020 was marked by the warranted fight against the COVID-19 pandemic which continued to change the face of the world, the ambitions for a better global road safety were not scaled back. COVID-19 has taught us to move away from the “silo mentality” and instead align development goals with each other – resulting in higher impact policies and programs.
Among the projects launched last year (2020), it is mentioned the project “Safer and cleaner used vehicles for Africa”: implemented by UNEP, in partnership with CITA – among others stakeholders – it aims at regulating the export and import of used vehicles in West and East Africa, in countries such as Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire or Uganda.
