iRAP looks forward to sharing the life-saving impact of Star Rating for Schools (SR4S) and roads made safer world-wide thanks to the inspiring work of road safety NGOs at next week’s Global Meeting of the Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety in El Salvador.
iRAP is delighted to partner with the Alliance in hosting this year’s event. With the theme Rethinking road safety: Mobility for people and planet, the meeting will be held from 6–10 March co-hosted with the Vice-Ministry of Transport of El Salvador and World Health Organisation. It will be a hybrid event, enabling wider participation of NGOs and other stakeholders.
The Global Meeting will feature capacity building opportunities, inspiration from well-known safe mobility and sustainability experts, a high-level symposium with key influencers from government, multilateral organizations, private sector, and academia, as well as extensive networking opportunities. The interconnections between road safety, safe mobility, and other key global challenges addressed by the SDGs will be explored, with a focus on accountability for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021–2030.
iRAP’s Safer Journey Lead for The Americas Edgar Zamora will present on Wednesday 8 March in the Evidence based Solutions in Practice: From Safe System to 50% Reduction Session along with Saul Castelar, Senior Transport Specialist; Etienne Krug, Director, Social Determinants of Health, World Health Organization; Ishtiaque Ahmed, Economic Affairs Officer Sustainable Transport Section, Transport Division, ESCAP; and Soames Job, Transport Specialist.
Star Rating for Schools Global Coordinator Rafaela Machado will be meeting with SR4S Lead Partners and sharing the latest exciting developments in the award-winning application and programme which has already assessed the safety of school zones in more than 63 countries in partnership with NGOs. Evidence-based upgrades informed by the application have informed star upgrades which are saving lives and preventing serious injuries every day in communities across the world.
