Saving Lives Beyond 2020: The Next Steps: Recommendations of the Academic Expert Group for the Third Ministerial Conference on Global Road Safety 2020
Responsible organisation
2020 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

An Academic Expert Group convened by the Swedish Transport Administration lent its combined experience, expertise and understanding of global road safety issues, problems and solutions to create a set of recommendations for a decade of activity by the public and private sectors that would lead to a reduction of worldwide road deaths by one-half by 2030. The recommendations are made in the context of a Third High-Level Conference on Global Road Safety to be held in Stockholm in February 2020 and are offered for consideration by conference participants and leaders from business, corporations, governments and civil society worldwide.

The report reflects on the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, addressing both its accomplishments and limitations. The targeted reductions in global road deaths were not achieved, and in fact the number of global road traffic deaths increased over the decade. Available data are insufficient to assess progress on serious injuries. However, there were many foundational accomplishments during the decade, including increased awareness of road safety problems and solutions among governments, corporations, businesses and civil society; measurable and effective safety improvements in many locations; new funding, and new partnerships. Road safety needs were expressed in a new structure using five pillars and evidence-based interventions were identified for each pillar, along with measures and targets. A significant achievement of the Decade of Action 2011-2020 was the inclusion of road safety among the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Integrating a road safety target into SDG 3.6 and 11.2 was a remarkable accomplishment with far-reaching potential.

The report proposes a vision for the evolution of road safety and recommends a new target of 50 percent reduction in road deaths and serious injuries by 2030 based on expanded application of the five pillars, adoption of Safe System principles and integration of road safety among the Sustainable Development Goals. The vision describes an evolution of road safety, building from the foundation of the pillars, incorporating adoption of the Safe System approach, and leading to a future comprehensive integration of road safety activity in policy-making and the daily operations of governments, businesses, and corporations through their entire value chains. The vision also stresses the need for further engagement of the public and private sectors and civil society in road safety activities and capacity-building among road safety professionals worldwide.
