A presentation given by Professor Peter F.M. Choong from the Policy and Donor Forum 2014.
The Decade of Action Policy and Donor Forum, held in Melbourne, Australia, called for road safety to be included in the new ‘post-2015’ goals for global development currently being debated at the United Nations. The Forum was hosted by the RACV and co-organised by the AAA, the Commission for Global Road Safety, the Road Safety Fund and the FIA Foundation. The Forum brought together governments, NGOs and automobile clubs, and the private sector from across Australia and Asia/Pacific, as well as global institutions including the Asian Development Bank, World Bank, World Health Organization and UNESCAP. The event was part of a global ‘Week of Action’ to encourage participation in the UN’s global ‘My World’ vote, which has already seen 2 million people cast votes for their priorities in the next global development goals.
