Upscaling Support and Developing A Shared Approach 2011 - 2015
MDBs support the global call for action from World Health Assembly Resolution WHA57.10 (Road safety and health), UN General Assembly Resolutions 586/289, 60/5, 62/244, 64/255, and 66/260 (Improving global road safety). Since issuing the Joint Statement, the MDBs have, collectively and individually, been scaling up their support for road safety. This includes increased loan and grant financing for road safety investments, and technical assistance for strengthening road safety capacity, policies and institutions in client countries as well as awareness events. 2015 marks the mid-term of the UN Decade of Action on Road Safety and progress needs to be intensified and accelerated to meet the Decade goal of stabilizing and reducing road traffic deaths.
