23 May First African Observatory to Tackle the Continent’s Road Safety Crisis

The World Bank, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), and the International Transport Forum (ITF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today to establish the first regional Road Safety Observatory in Africa.

The Observatory will support African countries’ efforts to reduce road transport fatalities by uniting their activities to systematically collect, analyze, and share reliable road crash data. It will also serve as a platform for government officials and road safety experts to exchange knowledge, share best practices, and scale up effective policies across the region.
