United Nations Road Safety Collaboration

 

Description

The World Health Organisation (WHO), working in close cooperation with the United Nations regional commissions, acts as coordinator on road safety issues across the United Nations system. This is the UN Road Safety Collaboration.
Since May 2004 WHO has hosted three meetings of the UN Road Safety Collaboration. With representatives from more than 42 organizations (11 of which are United Nations agencies), the Collaboration has initiated work on the following activities: development of a series of manuals on good practice; creation of a dynamic, global web-based database on road safety legislation; completing and updating of a series of resolutions on road traffic signs and signals adapted in the European region; follow-up regional stakeholder meetings; and the establishment of an annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
