UN Road Safety Trust Fund


Established in April 2018, the United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund (UNRSTF) aims to contribute to two major outcomes, namely assisting UN Member States to a) substantially curb the number of fatalities and injuries from road traffic crashes and b) reduce economic losses resulting from these crashes. Building on best practices and expertise developed through the Decade of Action for Road Safety, the Trust Fund will support concrete actions helping to achieve the road safety-related targets (target 3.6 and target 11.2) of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Key areas of work

In focus

Road safety stakeholders from around the world have come together to advance the final steps in the operationalization of the United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund.

Member States representing each of the United Nations Regions – Argentina, Lebanon, Nigeria, Russian Federation, Sweden – gathered in Geneva on 21 and 22 November 2018 alongside UN, multilateral development banks, private sector representatives, civil society and academic partners for the second meeting of the Advisory Board and Steering Committee of the United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund.

The Fund’s bodies approved 5 pilot projects, for a total of nearly USD 1 million.
