...until the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety in Sweden. iRAP has an exciting line-up of pre-events and announcements planned to support Ministers, governments, road safety NGOs, mobility clubs and practitioners to create a world free of high risk roads. We’ll be highlighting the iRAP Global Standard for road infrastructure safety and how countries can achieve the UN Global Road Safety Performance Targets 3 and 4. The lifesaving work of our partners across more than 100 countries will be on show in the following ways:
2020 INNOVATION WORKSHOP

The 2020 Innovation Workshop will bring together leaders at the highest level of global and regional impact including government, policy, financing, technology, infrastructure management and data innovation. With the theme “Achieving the UN Road Safety Targets by 2030”, presentations will explore how innovation in planning, design, financing, upgrading roads and sharing success can help to provide the global structure needed to deliver the 2030 targets, harness the power of big data to save lives, create safer cities and journeys for vulnerable road users, and investment for impact on scale.

Star Rating for Schools (SR4S), made possible with the founding sponsorship of FedEx and major donor support of the FIA Foundation, is a systematic and evidence-based tool for measuring, managing and communicating the risk children are exposed to on a journey to school. It supports quick interventions that save kids lives and prevent serious injuries from day one. The Launch will open access to this important tool for partners to use worldwide and is the exciting culmination of 7 years of research, development and global pilot studies. 670 schools have already been assessed, school zones upgraded and capacity built across 30 countries, supported by 12 world-leading NGOs involved in school road safety.
