UNDA Road Safety Management Capacity Building Project

 

Strengthening the national road safety management capacities of selected developing countries and countries with economies in transition

 

Project Title:

Strengthening the national road safety management capacities of selected developing countries and countries with economies in transition

Start date:

June 2015

End date:

December 2017

Budget:

US$ 498,000

Beneficiary Countries:

Albania, Georgia, the Dominican Republic and Viet Nam

Executing Entity:

United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)

Co-operating Agencies:

Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC)

The proposed project aims to assist four countries in the ECE, ESCAP and ECLAC regions to address their priority road safety needs by improving their national road safety management systems. The project activities will be implemented in four low- or middle-income countries: Albania, Georgia, the Dominican Republic and Viet Nam. They have highest mortality and motorisation growth rates in their respective regions and require international assistance to improve national road safety situation and develop road safety management systems.

The first step in building the national road safety management capacities will be to assess country road safety situation and road safety management system through the Road Safety Performance Review. Assessment should identify: limitation in capacities, financial and human resources, necessary statistical capabilities and other pressing economic or social problems which have prevented countries from establishing or upgrading their road safety management system. Identification of gaps in national legal and regulatory framework, compliance with international road safety instruments and coordination of road safety stakeholders will be addressed in the Road Safety Performance Review as well.

On the basis of assessment, most critical aspects and priority needs in road safety management system will be identified. Based on identified relevant priority areas national capacity building workshops will be prepared and implemented to enhance national road safety management system capacity. Furthermore, project aims to help countries to raise public awareness on road safety issues and sensitize public and non-governmental sector on the need to set ambitious road safety targets and adopt specific measures to meet them.

Through publication of project documents (Road Safety Performance Review) on national languages and preparation of the dedicated web page, the project will share the good practices and raise the awareness of the beneficiary countries about the critical needs to timely and adequately address road safety challenges and emphasise the importance of the accession and implementation of the key UN road-safety related legal instruments, as an effective means for improving road safety management at the national level.

The project will be implemented by three UN Regional Commissions: United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). The ECE Sustainable Transport Division will lead and coordinate the proposed inter-regional project.

Activities

A1.1 Organize four preparatory missions by relevant Regional Commission staff to the beneficiary countries to discuss with national authorities the objectives, outlines and timelines of the Road Safety Performance Reviews; This preparatory mission will result in the agreement between the respective Regional Commission and beneficiary country where specific areas to be reviewed are defined.

A1.2 Organize four fact-finding missions by relevant Regional Commission staff and project consultants to the beneficiary countries to interview national authorities and other stakeholders;

A1.3 Organize four final missions by relevant Regional Commission staff and project consultants to the beneficiary countries to present the main findings of the final draft Road Safety Performance Reviews to the national authorities and other stakeholders (back to back with A2.1); 

A1.4 In collaboration with national governments, finalize the Country Road Safety Performance Review by relevant Regional Commission staff and project consultants, translate, publish and launch the Road Safety Performance Reviews in English and the relevant national language;

A2.1 Organize four capacity-building one-day national workshops to initiate national dialogue on the Road Safety Performance Reviews, and to provide training in priority areas identified in the reviews (back to back with A1.3); The capacity-building national seminars would be attended by national government officials and other relevant road safety stakeholders. The objective is to provide general training on priority areas identified through the Road Safety Performance Reviews.

A2.2 Organize four follow up capacity-building two-day national workshops on the accession and implementation of UN road-safety related legal instruments. The objective is to provide in-depth training on specific priority areas identified through the Road Safety Performance Reviews.

A2.3 Create project web page as part of the UNECE Transport Division web presentation where relevant project activities and results are published in order to disseminate project results and the best practice; Web page will be promoted in all project activities and through relevant Regional Commission road safety activities (meetings, workshops, working parties, etc.).
