The Ten Step Plan was produced by the UNRSC Safer Roads and Mobility Group partners to provide a clear process for establishing systems, building capacity and creating partnerships to support implementation of the UN Convention on Road Traffic and Road Signs and Signals and achievement of the UN Member States Agreed Global Targets 3 and 4 for safer new and existing roads.
The Ten Step Plan is a key resource to support the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety (2021-2030) which aims to halve deaths and injuries by 2030. Currently, more than 1.35 million people are killed and as many as 50 million people are injured a year, with 90 per cent of those casualties occurring in developing countries. Road crashes are the leading cause of death around the world for children and young people between 15 and 29 years of age.
The webinar, which had 1243 registrations from 120 countries, brought together a range of international speakers to discuss the 10-step plan.
