Around the world, people are getting ready for the 6th UN Global Road Safety Week. Today we are featuring some of the amazing work done by iRAP and its partners to #Love30 and eliminate high-risk streets.

The charity, International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP), is working with its partners in over 100 countries to eliminate high-risk streets and #Love30 this UN Global Road Safety Week. They work with governments, road agencies, mobility clubs, development banks, research organisations and road safety NGOs to provide the knowledge, tools and training to make their road infrastructure safer – 3-star or better.

A paradigm shift in how streets are designed, starting with low speeds where people and traffic mix, makes streets safe, accessible, enjoyable and equitable for all road users, delivering multiple benefits for all whilst accelerating action across interlinking SDGs.

The iRAP global Star Rating standard and supporting KPIs, Risk Mapping, fatality and injury estimations, investment plans and innovative tools like ViDA, Star Rating for Designs, Star Rating for Schools and AiRAP are empowering partners to act worldwide.

 

 

As well as sharing the UNGRSW resources and actions with partners on its dedicated iRAP UNGRSW website, the charity’s recommends for:

  1. On-sharing of iRAP’s #Love30 videos produced in partnership with the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety.
