Safe Way Right Way Background

A number of African countries have developed road safety policies. Unfortunately these efforts have lacked ownership, visibility and the continuity necessary for effective results. Many small scale road safety activities are carried out without synergy or coherent framework of action, or uninformed of the System Approach developed by countries with higher standards of road safety and recommended by the World Health Organization and the World Bank in the World Report on Traffic Injury Prevention.

 

National road safety lead institutions empowered to take initiatives, responsible for results, funded for leadership remain lacking. Still, a few countries, such as Ethiopia and Ghana have recently developed a full-fledged state of the art road safety policy, with a long term vision, quantitative objectives and action plans, fact–based monitoring and evaluation, and initial results are emerging.

The Africa Union sponsorship of the road safety agenda provides a valuable leadership and coordinating capacity, with Regional Economic Communities (RECs) engaged in economic integration and regulatory harmonization within RECs that may promote, monitor, coordinate and communicate progress towards improved road safety. The Sub Saharan African Transport Partnership (SSATP) serves as the transportation policy instrument for the African Transport Ministers and may be used for documentation and knowledge dissemination.
