In this episode we take a step back and explore the Global perspective on road safety as key components of healthy, active, and safe urban roads. There are a range of evidence-based frameworks and interventions that guide global efforts toward safer, healthier, and more sustainable roads. The Global Plan for the second Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 was launched Oct. 28, 2021, by the World Health Organization. This Global Plan acts as a guiding document to support the implementation of the Decade of Action, which has the ambitious target to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries by 50 per cent by 2030. These evidence-informed frameworks provide us with strategies for improved road safety, such as speed reduction measures, promotion of multi-modal transportation, urban planning methods and road design solutions. The implementation of this globally supported harm reduction framework is an important step toward achieving safer urban roads.
  • We know what works. There is a global movement focused on advocating for and implementing effective interventions that reduce death and injury from road crashes.
  • By 2030, the goal of the Decade of Action for Road Safety is to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries by 50 per cent.
  • Tools and resources are available for non-governmental organizations (NGOs), individuals, and governments that provide information on what changes are needed, how to make these changes, and how to track progress.
