Help halve road deaths and injuries in low-income countries
Our mission is to finance and leverage further funding for high-impact projects based on established and internationally recognized best practices that increase road safety and minimize and eventually eliminate road crash trauma for all road users.
When the world truly comes together to solve a problem, amazing progress tends to follow.
Despite increasing political commitment towards global road safety, 1.3 million preventable deaths and 50 million injuries each year from road crashes form an unacceptable toll on our society that has largely remained unchanged over the last 20 years.
By coming together for safe mobility we can save hundreds of thousands of lives every year.
What is needed to succeed is global resolve – and financing.
Road deaths and injuries are preventable if we put safety first.
The UN Road Safety Fund is about saving lives and protecting the dreams and futures of our next generations.
We help low- and middle-income countries put in place the proven safety systems that safeguard their citizens and visitors from the risks of road travel.
We finance projects, which participating UN agencies implement alongside our partners, to build the practices, policies, regulations and capacity needed to put these systems in place.
