The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) has annouced the launch of a key new web resource to support advocacy efforts specifically for road safety policies and implementation.
The new Advocacy Resource Centre (www.grsproadsafety.org/advocacy ) is a one-stop resource for organizations campaigning for road safety policies or policy implementation. It features over 800 pieces of content, which have been specifically collated and created to be useful for both road safety organizations and other organizations that may be interested in addressing road safety.
The content includes case studies, fact sheets, messages, images and example social media posts, which can all be filtered to search in relation to behavioral risk factors and tactical approaches, such as Building Public Awareness or Mobilizing Public Action. The content is gathered from 43 countries and will continue to be built upon throughout 2016, with a key focus on low- and middle-income countries, who share the largest burden of fatalities and injuries resulting from road crashes.
The Advocacy Resource Centre also holds GRSP’s comprehensive Advocacy Toolkit, which is a nine section resource detailing all aspects of constructing a successful advocacy campaign, focusing specifically on road safety. The toolkit includes guidance on topics such as planning a campaign, setting policy priorities and political mapping, among others.

In February 2016, GRSP will hold three one-hour webinars aimed at providing instruction and insight on effectively using the resource centre for road safety advocacy campaigns.
