3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety
The Government of Sweden and WHO have announced the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety on 19-20 February 2020 to be held at the Waterfront Congress Centre in Stockholm. The conference marks the end of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and the starting point for continued collaboration on road safety. The aim is to reach global consensus on guidelines for continued international collaboration on road safety up to 2030.
The 3rd Global Ministerial Conference will primarily convene minister-led delegations from more than 80 countries. In addition, the Conference will engage representatives from the worlds of industry and research, international institutions and other global organizations.
NGOs have a valuable role to play in encouraging their governments to attend the conference and show their commitment to strategic road safety in their countries.
