Launch of the United Nations Road Safety Strategy: A Partnership for Safer Journeys
28 Feb 2019 -  Opening Remarks by Peter Drennan, Under-Secretary-General for Safety and Security and Jean Todt, Secretary-General’s Special Envoy on Road Safety.
The UN internal road safety strategy was endorsed by the Secretary-General in January 2018. The Secretary-General’s participation in the launch of the Road Safety Strategy will be an excellent opportunity to mobilize and ensure buy-in from senior UN leadership, revitalize internal engagement and commit to efforts on road safety, solicit donor engagement, initiate concrete actions to implement the strategy and reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by road traffic accidents in the UN-system.
