Advocacy Resource Centre

Global Road Safety Partnership/IFRC 2015

The Global Road Safety Partnership, a hosted project of the IFRC, has released an essential new web-based resource to support advocacy efforts for improved road safety policies and implementation of programmes. This new online Advocacy Resource Centre is a one-stop resource for civil society organizations, National Societies and individuals campaigning for road safety policies or policy implementation. Content has been gathered from 43 countries, including the work of many National Societies, and will continue to be built upon throughout 2016, with a key focus on low- and middle-income countries, who share the largest burden of fatalities and injuries resulting from road crashes.
