The governance structure of the UN Road Safety Fund is composed of an Advisory Board, a Steering Committee, a Secretariat and an Administrative Agent.

The Advisory Board provides strategic direction to the Fund, including advice on criteria for proposals, monitoring and evaluation and priorities for funding projects. The broad membership of the Board ensures that the strategic guidance provided to the Steering Committee reflects a large consensus among the various stakeholders. The World Bank, as the host of the Global Road Safety Facility, is a member of the Advisory Board in order to ensure coordination and coherence between funding mechanisms.

The Steering Committee has the direct oversight on the Fund and the authority to make decisions such as the approval of projects for funding in line with the strategic direction provided by the Advisory Board. 

The Fund's secretariat is housed at the UNECE in Geneva. It provides substantive, operational and logistical support to the Advisory Board and the Steering Committee. It is responsible for fund mobilization; organizing calls for project applications; and monitoring and reporting on the Fund’s programmatic and operational performance.

The UN Road Safety Fund is administered by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) Office based in New York, which acts as the Administrative Agent. It is responsible for the Fund’s design and setup, the maintenance of the Fund’s account, the receipt of donor contributions, the disbursement of funds and the provision of periodic consolidated reports.
