With support from the Bloomberg Philanthropies under the BIGRS 2020-2025, the World Bank’s GRSF and iRAP have partnered to deliver periodic learning events on the iRAP methodology. Every webinar series will put in the spotlight a country with significant road safety lessons to be shared.

The focus of this webinar will be on the road safety experience and lessons learned in India, presenting how the local program– IndiaRAP was created, and the safety assessments that were conducted across the country.

The BIGRS IndiaRAP webinar series will help building capacity of road authorities around the world interested in the iRAP methodology to eliminate high-risk roads, unlock the economic benefits of 3-star or better roads through results-based financing, and meet global SDG and UN Target obligations.
