In 2022, Alliance member NGOs defined a global Declaration and five regional calls to action based on three principles, which were updated in 2023:
The NGO Declaration sets out our global call to action.
We call on our governments to act for people’s right to safe mobility and a 50% reduction in road deaths and injuries by 2030.
1 EVIDENCE-BASED ACTIONS: prioritize interventions that have been proven to save lives and reduce injuries, starting with 30 km/h limits or lower where people walk, cycle, live, and play; lower speed limits; pedestrian facilities; traﬃc calming; and comprehensive motorcycle helmet laws backed up with enforcement and promotion; and incorporating other evidence-based interventions identiﬁed at local and regional levels.
2 TRANSPARENT AND ACCOUNTABLE INVESTMENT TO MAKE MOBILITY SAFE: demonstrate accountability through speciﬁc funding allocation that incorporates safety in its core and includes implementation of life and injury-saving interventions listed above, based on evidence and impact, and through transparent public reporting that includes sources of funding and speciﬁc amounts.
3 NGO INVOLVEMENT IN DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES: work with NGOs and communities, enabling an environment where civil society and government can work together eﬀectively, so that evidence-based road safety decisions that save lives and injuries are made at every level of government.
The evidence-based actions, investment, and approach to NGO involvement in decision-making have been refined to reflect the reality of each of five regions.
We call on governments in Africa to implement or guarantee accountable, well-resourced, and empowered road safety institutions that are responsible and capable of managing all necessary road safety elements and which coordinate with other governmental authorities such as Ministries of Health, Transport, Infrastructure, and Education, in order to reduce road fatalities and serious injuries by 50% by 2030 and guarantee people’s right to safe mobility.
We call on all governments in Asia Pacific to commit to act for people’s right to safe mobility and a 50% reduction in road deaths and injuries by 2030, with an urgent focus on motorcycle users who are at greatest risk of injury in the region
We call on all governments in Europe to commit to act for people’s right to safe mobility and a 50% reduction in road deaths and injuries by 2030 through implementation of evidence-based interventions that put people at the center, protect our children and their right to life and education, safeguard the environment, and promote equality and inclusion. Safe mobility is our right.
Tras una década de fracaso colectivo, instamos a los gobiernos y poderes públicos de los países de América Latina a hacer de la política de seguridad vial una prioridad nacional, adoptando el enfoque de Sistema Seguro. Los exhortamos a obligar y garantizar el bien jurídico tutelado de una movilidad segura, sostenible e incluyente, que trascienda los plazos gubernamentales e incorpore metas e indicadores de resultados, y a implementar acciones basadas en evidencia, con especial énfasis en la gestión de la velocidad, la seguridad de los vehículos motorizados de dos ruedas, y proveer una atención integral a las víctimas viales y sus familias.
We call on governments in North America to commit to act for people’s right to safe mobility and a 50% reduction in road deaths and injuries by 2030, through implementation of evidence-based interventions that put people at the center, protect the environment, and promote equality and inclusion, through investment in effective solutions, and involvement of civil society.
