The 2030 recognizes road safety as a global priority, establishing a goal of reducing road traffic deaths and injuries by 50% by the year 2020. SDG 3.6.

Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020

Officially proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in March 2010. Its goal is to stabilize and reduce the forecast level of road traffic deaths around the world. It is estimated that 5 millions lives could be saved on the world’s roads during the decade. 

Global Road Safety Performance Targets

In April 2018 during its seventy-fourth session, the United Nations General Assembly approved by consensus the 12 voluntary global performance targets for road safety risk factors and service delivery mechanisms and encouraged Member States to take steps, following good practices, towards achieving the voluntary global performance targets for road safety. 

Stockholm Declaration

Building on the Moscow Declaration of 2009 and the Brasilia Declaration of 2015, UN General Assembly and World Health Assembly resolutions, the Stockholm Declaration is ambitious and forward-looking and connects road safety to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Stockholm Declaration also reflects the recommendations of the conference’s Academic Expert Group and its independent and scientific assessments of progress made during the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and its proposals for a way forward.
