Road safety is critical to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Road crashes remain the biggest killer of young people worldwide and transport produces around 25% of man-made carbon emissions. Innovative policies, tools and action are needed to meet international and national road safety and sustainable transport targets through solutions that deliver for both people and the planet. Promoting active mobility is central to decarbonizing urban mobility. But as more people move to sustainable modes such as walking and cycling, exposure to conflicts with large, high-speed vehicles increase. It is therefore essential the safety of all road users is at the heart of transport planning and policy. Policy experts are embracing Safe System principles in support of Vision Zero goals and the potential for 5-star users in 5-star modes of transport on 5-star roads at safe speeds to provide the framework for that to occur.
The 2023 iRAP Innovation Workshop will bring together leaders and experts in road safety innovation, policy, technologies and investment from across the world. In addition, attendees registered for the Congress will have access to the more than 60 Technical Sessions, Workshops and Foresight Sessions, as well as the Congress Dinner and networking opportunities with 40+ Ministers, 3,500+ delegates and 300 exhibitors from 120 countries.
