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

Following the third session of its Advisory Board, held in Geneva on 3 September 2019, the UN Road Safety Fund will be launching its first formal call for project proposals. 

The Fund will disburse USD 4 million to finance selected projects aimed at contributing to reduce global road traffic fatalities, giving priority to individual country and multi-country projects having immediate and tangible impact.   

The call is expected to officially open in early October 2019, when details on funding parameters and application process will be published on the Fund’s web page. 

Project proposals shall be submitted through one of the ten Fund participating UN organizations, and will be assessed in line with the Fund's Global Framework Plan of Action for Road Safety and Funding Criteria and Priorities.
