    SIXSTH GLOBAL MEETING OF NGO’s ON ROAD SAFETY

    NGOs and global road safety stakeholders gathered last week in Chania, Greece, call for governments around the world to commit to saving lives by reducing road deaths and injuries in their countries by 50% by 2030 and accepting the help of NGOs to achieve this challenging target. EASST partners meet also to mark our 10th anniversary.

    Every year, 1.35 million people are killed on the world’s roads, while tens of millions more are injured or disabled. Road traffic injuries have now become the eighth leading cause of death worldwide. Despite UN-mandated targets, road deaths are increasing globally. Urgent action is needed. 

    The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety (the Alliance) and its members such as EASST mobilize last week at the Sixth Global Meeting of Nongovernmental Organizations Advocating for Road Safety and Road Victims (the Global Meeting). Together, they called to extend target 3.6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to year 2030

    At the Global Meeting, 270 NGOs, politicians, multilateral agencies, corporate stakeholders, and road safety advocates, from 76 countries, including central Asian countries such as Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan reflect on progress so far and assess what further specific actions are needed to achieve substantial and lasting reductions in the number of deaths and serious injuries occurring daily on the world’s roads. Tajikistan was represented by PO “Young Generation of Tajikistan” who is an active partner of Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport. As part of the Global Alliance meeting YGT was involved in a number of sessions, including the day-long symposium on post-crash response and participating in workshops.
