Second Global Road Safety Stakeholders' Forum

On 25 April 2007 the Second Global Road Safety Stakeholders' Forum will be held, convening representatives of governments, United Nations agencies, civil society and the private sector. The first Forum took place in April 2004 providing a mechanism for a broad group of stakeholders to share perspectives and define ways to contribute collectively towards advancing road safety efforts around the world.

The objectives of the Forum are to raise awareness about road traffic injuries; strengthen demand for road safety; build political will; support ongoing sustainable and collaborative efforts to implement the recommendations of the World report on road traffic injury prevention; and contribute to identifying and mobilizing resources.
