A long-term support programme partnership is underway between iRAP and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) from 2022-2026 to stimulate safer roads progress in low- and middle-income countries.
The partnership will include Star Rating and Investment Plan Assessments in Niger, Cote d´Ivoire and Nepal; Star Rating for Schools in Morocco and Cote d’Ivoire; capacity building through training and accreditation; and technical assistance.
The establishment of local self-governing Road Assessment Programmes linked to MCC partnerships is also a key priority.
The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) is an innovative and independent U.S. foreign assistance agency that is helping lead the fight against global poverty by focusing on economic growth, strengthening institutions, good policies, country ownership, and results.
iRAP Global Programme Director Greg Smith said, “We are excited to partner with MCC on this transformative 4-year compact which will bring multi-country results for safer road infrastructure, increased road safety capacity and effective investment to save lives and reduce serious injuries in the priority countries”.
