A world where roads are safer for all people
Two Decades of Action for Road Safety
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognized road safety as a prerequisite to healthy lives and well-being, and making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020, officially proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in March 2010, sought to save millions of lives by:
- Building road safety management capacity
- Improving the safety of road infrastructure
- Further developing the safety of vehicles
- Enhancing the behavior of road users
- Improving post-crash response
Guided by the Global Plan, the Decade of Action offered a framework for policy, practice and advocacy to help countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. This also marks TSR’s roots.
This framework was renewed for a second decade (2021-2030) with this resolution. In addition, within the framework of the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, co-organised by the World Health Organisation and the Swedish Government, which took place in Stockholm in early 2020, the Academic Expert Group of the Conference has compiled a set of recommendations for a road safety strategy for the period 2020-2030 and some preliminary conclusions on the Decade of Action for Road Safety and the 2030 Agenda.
Our road safety programming is aligned around all of these recommendations.

We aim to bend the curve on road traffic collisionsRoad crashes are one of the leading causes of death and injuries worldwide -- they don't have to be.
Our Core Beliefs
A group of Stubborn Optimists, we gather a diverse group of forces together to create exponential change.
Act with Ambition
We keep an eye on scaling our work, charting a course of action that goes beyond singular projects to achieve greater impact.
We care about our colleagues’ physical and mental well being; we make an effort to ensure our workplace is a safe environment.
We realize that vision must be translated to action; we are mindful of being scrappy in order to achieve our goals.
We are resourceful in problem solving to advance our mission; we question the status quo in order to improve our effectiveness.
We take time to be inclusive with each other, respectfully share grievances that may be undermining our work and our culture, and avoid hidden agendas.
We work well with our team and members, putting shared outcomes ahead of personal gain; we agree to disagree in a respectful way.
