United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund launches call for pilot project proposals

Published: 20 September 2018

As efforts advance to fully operationalize the United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund, launched in April 2018, targeted individual actions can help meet urgent needs to improve road safety on the ground.

In this context, a call to the Fund’s Participating Organisations for pilot project proposals has been issued.

These projects should focus on assisting countries with the highest numbers or rates of road fatalities in addressing their principle road safety challenges. This could be done by addressing missing components or improving weak elements of the countries’ national road safety systems, or by helping them prepare action plans for the development of such systems.

Currently, the Fund’s Participating Organisations are:

United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA)

United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)

United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and Caribbean (ECLAC)

United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)

United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA)

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat)

United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)

Any government, non-profit institution or NGO interested in proposing a pilot project should contact the officers in charge of road safety in any of the Participating Organisations and jointly develop a sound project proposal. If no such contact is available, please refer to the guidance here.

The deadline for project submission is 25 October 2018. Only project proposals submitted through one of the Participating Organisations will be considered further.
