The Alliance will be running several training sessions for members over the coming months to support advocacy following the UN Global Road Safety Week and ahead of the launch of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021 – 2030 and the Head of State Meeting on Road Safety planned for 2022. These sessions are open to Alliance members only, due to capacity issues.
5 October 2021
This session will explore how NGOs can participate meaningfully in the decision making process in their countries to help achieve the global road safety goals.
2 – 3 November 2021
Holding governments accountable for the road safety targets is an essential role for NGOs. This session will look at how NGOs can push progress in their countries to achieve national commitments and global targets.
The Alliance has partnered with the World Resources Institute (WRI) to organize and deliver training and mentorship for Alliance member NGOs to fast-track their capacity for planning and executing targeted advocacy activities that will result in quicker outcomes and save lives.
During UN Global Road Safety Week, NGOs made remarkable progress to mobilizing citizens in large numbers and engage with decision makers. While campaign events are important, campaigning is a subset of advocacy. This training will use real time examples and case studies to help NGOs bridge the gap from campaign to advocacy in their long-term goals and to changing policies and practices within a strategic and often political framework.
