9th IRF Regional Conference

Monday, 05 October 2015

The 9th IRF Regional Conference – “Road Safety Initiatives : Status and the Way Forward” will take place in New Delhi, India on the 5th October 2015 - 06th October 2015.

The conference will aim to take stock of the situation in States across the country and to build up a realistic agenda for further actions required to achieve the goals of the “UN Decade of Action”. Infrastructure alone cannot deliver total safety on roads. Along with legal and enforcement systems, civil society also needs to own the efforts for achieving the targets set to free society of the trauma caused by road crashes. While an investment of 1 trillion USD targeted for infrastructure during the 12th Plan will provide huge opportunities, the aim should be to meet the infrastructure requirements of all road users, to realise true safety.

The 9th Regional Conference is going to be a common platform for State and Central Governments as well as Civil Society to share their success stories and help chalk out the Way Forward for the next five years of the Decade of Action in terms of:

- Initiatives across the Board- Engineering, Education, Enforcement
- Technology Support for Road Safety
- In-Vehicle Safety and Standardization
- Trauma Care and Rehabilitation System
- Road Safety Management Capacity
- Crash Data and Monitoring & Evaluation
- Vehicle Inspection & Maintenance Regime
- Safe Infrastructure for all Road Users
- Community Participation in Road Safety
- Sustainable Funding for Road Safety
