2021 has been another remarkable year for the Alliance and its members. See some of the highlights the Alliance and its members during 2021 in infographics, member pictures, and videos below.
The Alliance now has 290 members in 98 countries. This includes 34 new members this year. See our members.
Alliance membership has been bolstered by the addition of a new membership category, associate membership, enabling us to broaden our network and strengthen the Alliance. Alongside this, a Friends of the Alliance scheme has been created, enabling us to recognize the valuable contribution of our corporate, academic, and global supporters. Read about our membership categories.
In May 2021, the UN Global Road Safety Week (UNGRSW) provided a coordinated opportunity to advocate for a specific, evidence-based intervention: 30 km/h limits where people walk, live, and play. NGOs obtained endorsements for 30 km/h limits from more than 100 decision makers and 21 commitments. The impact from UNGRSW continues; in several countries, including Argentina and Kenya, the wheels have been put in motion for default national 30 km/h limits in specified contexts. See the Alliance’s video for UNGRSW below.
In October 2021, the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 was launched. The Global Plan is the blueprint for governments to achieve the 2030 target and is therefore a key advocacy tool for NGOs. NGOs contributed to the draft of the plan through a member consultation and after the launch, NGOs in 35 countries organized events and meetings where they personally handed the Global Plan to their decision makers. See footage from the handovers and our call to action for the Global Plan below.
