The Global Road Safety Partnership

 In the 1998 edition of its World Disasters Report, the International Federation warned of the unacceptable numbers of traffic deaths and injuries worldwide, and their dramatic consequences on people and livelihoods.

One year later, the International Federation, World Bank and the UK’s department for international development (DfID) formed the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) to address these issues.

The GRSP, which is hosted at the International Federation’s Geneva Secretariat, allows governments and their agencies, the private sector and civil society to urgently address road safety issues, especially in low- and middle-income countries.

GRSP brings together these sectors at the global, national and sometimes local government level, provides advice on good practice and facilitates projects in a growing number of developing and transition countries.
