Implementing the recommendations of the World Report on Road Traffic Injury Prevention requires capacity building at the global, regional and country levels, to create the resources and tools necessary to target initiatives on a scale capable of reducing significantly and sustainably road deaths and injuries in low and middle-income countries.
At the country level implementation requires an integrated framework that treats the World Report recommendations as a totality and ensures that institutional strengthening initiatives are properly sequenced and adjusted to the absorptive and learning capacity of the country concerned.
Emerging global and regional initiatives aiming to assist the acceleration of knowledge transfer to low and middle income countries and the scaling up of their road safety investments must be harmonized. Opportunities must also be taken to combine and leverage the weight and effectiveness of resources being mobilized to improve the results being achieved.
The guidelines presented in thisWorld Report on Road Traffic Injury Prevention provide a pragmatic approach designed to overcome country capacity barriers and achieve sustainable results.
