High Impact RAPs

iRAP is the global umbrella organisation for a number of ‘x’RAPs – national or state Road Assessment Programmes (RAPs) – that bring together local experts, using local research and resources to eliminate high-risk roads in their countries, supported by the global iRAP Programme, tools, training and connections to world-leading expertise.

Whilst RAPs can be very different in their structure and focus, successful RAPs tend to have well-coordinated programme leadership and a focus on optimising road safety assessments, policy, capacity building, investment, road upgrades implementation, communications, advocacy and evaluation. They share a common goal to bring together government agencies, mobility, investment, research and NGO partners in their jurisdiction to build expertise and drive action to eliminate 1 and 2-star unsafe roads and ensure new roads are designed and constructed to the 3-star or better global standard for all road users.
