What’s going on – and media tools to support you

 

 

iRAP produces a wide range of communications, information material and technical resources to support road safety practitioners, media professionals, and road safety advocates to advance the cause of safer roads worldwide.

With over 80 countries with iRAP assessments and thousands of partners working on iRAP related projects around the world a lot happens every month.  We promote safer roads and share the success of our partners through our active participation in major global road safety, health and policy events and forums. Our thought leadership events that are attended by policy leaders, engineers, urban planners, social scientists, psychologists and medical road trauma specialists are helping to shape the future of road safety.

Making roads safer is a social justice issue, like the right to clean water or the global fight against poverty. Worldwide – in rich and poor countries alike – it is often the most vulnerable who are most at risk from road crashes.

Information is one of our key tools in the campaign for safer roads.  Every new person who commits to support safer roads is helping to save lives!
