Global Directions in Road Safety

We will probably look back on 2020 as an important time for international road safety; after the global ministerial conference in Stockholm what comes next?

Joined by Adrian Walsh (Executive Director at RoadSafe) and Dr Margie Peden (George Institute for Global Health) we explore a range of themes arising from the Stockholm event and the recommendations of the Academic Expert Group, as well as looking at role of the UN Road Safety Collaboration and other international networks.

The discussion also considered some of the impacts associated with the COVID19 pandemic and the degree to which that will impact on traffic, safety and associated health outcomes. To view the dedicated panel session on effects of coronavirus for traffic and safety, please click here.
