Our objectives are to promote public safety and public health, the protection and preservation of human life and the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment .
GRSP - Global Road Safety Partnership
The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) is an informal partnership of private sector, civil society, government and bi-/multi-lateral development organizations who share the premise that road safety conditions in the world, especially in developing countries, can be improved by working in partnership. GRSP's mission is to reduce deaths, injuries, disabilities and associated social costs of road traffic crashes through partnerhips which promote collaboration and coordination of road safety activities among partners for the benefit of the most vulnerable.
IATSS - International Association of Transport and Safety Sciences
The International Association of Traffic and Safety Science, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, publishes the journal IATSS Research twice a year.
ICTCT - International Coorperation on Theories and Concepts in Traffic safety
ICTCT is an association developed out of an international working group of safety experts with the aim to identify and analyse dangerous situations in road traffic on the basis of criteria other than past accidents, analogous to the methods of air and industrial safety.
IFP - International Federation of Pedestrians
The goals of IFP are to promote and to defend the pedestrian's right to full access and mobility.
International Transport Forum
In May 2005, Ministers agreed in Moscow that the ECMT should be transformed into a publicly recognised international Ministerial forum, designed to increase the understanding of the importance of transport. In Dublin, in May 2006, they established the International Transport Forum.
The aim of the Forum is to foster a deeper understanding among policy makers and wider audiences of the role of transport as a key to economic growth and of transportís impact on the environmental and social dimensions of sustainability.
IRCOBI International Research Council on Biomechanics on Injury
Road transport deaths and injuries have been a byproduct of increased motorisation since the introduction of the motor car; but had gone largely unnoticed by policymakers until three decades ago. Therefore, a small group of researchers from different European countries agreed to combine two programmes one on accident biomechanics and the other on human tolerance to impact into the science of the kinematics of impact injuries. These deliberations resulted in the formation of the International Research Committee on the Biokinetics of Impact (IRCOBI) under the leadership of Prof. Bertil Aldman who chaired IRCOBI for almost 20 years. In 1992, this group changed its name to the International Research Council on the Biomechanics of Injury to reflect more accurately its overall mission.
IRF - International Road Federation
The International Road Federation (IRF) is a unique global platform that brings together public and private entities committed to road development. Working together with its members and associates, the IRF promotes social and economic benefits that flow from well-planned and environmentally sound transportation networks.
IRTAD - International Road Traffic and Accident Database
In 1988, the OECD Road Transport Research Programme established the International Road Traffic and Accident Database (IRTAD) as a mechanism for providing an aggregated database, in which international accident and victim as well as exposure data are collected on a continuous basis.
National Statistical Offices Websites
The OECD groups 29 member countries in an organisation that, most importantly, provides governments a setting in which to discuss, develop and perfect economic and social policy. Their exchanges may lead to agreements to act in a formal way - for example, by establishing legally-binding codes for free flow of capital and services, agreements to crack down on bribery or to end subsidies for shipbuilding. But more often, their discussion makes for better informed work within their own governments on the spectrum of public policy and clarifies the impact of national policies on the international community. And it offers a chance to reflect and exchange perspectives with other countries similar to their own.
PIARC - World Road Association
PIARC - World Road Association - was founded in 1909 following the 1st International Road Congress held in Paris in 1908. It is the oldest international association concerned with Road Engineering, Road Policy and the Management of Road Networks. It has evolved since and now boasts 93 Member Governments and other Members in 129 countries worldwide. The official languages of PIARC are French and English. The Central Office of PIARC is located in PARIS, France.
Since 1983, EG-Liaison, part of Senter, shows you the way within the complex fields of European subsidies. It is free and independent. The project advisors of EG-Liaison provide information, advice, courses, and training. In addition, EG-Liaison helps you in the search for (research) partners. Its purpose is to strengthen the position in Europe of Dutch companies and organisations.
The SUNflower+6 project aims to identify differences in the road safety performance of different European countries, by a comparative study of the development of road safety. In the SUNflower project this approach has been applied successfully for the SUN countries (Sweden, United Kingdom and the Netherlands), that have safety records that are among the best in the world. Using the SUNflower-methodology, the study is continued and extended with three Southern European countries or regions (Greece, Portugal and Catalonia) and three Central European countries (Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovenia).
The European Red Cross Road Safety Campaign 2007-2008
Between April 2007 and June 2008, National Red Cross Societies will deliver programmes to increase awareness, knowledge and respect of road safety rules and behaviours as well as to promote first aid amongst the general public.
WHO - World Health Organization
The objective of WHO is the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health. Health, as defined in the WHO Constitution, is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. In support of its main objective, the Organization has a wide range of functions. WHO also proposes conventions, agreements, regulations and makes recommendations about international nomenclature of diseases, causes of death and public health practices. It develops, establishes and promotes international standards concerning foods and biological, pharmaceutical and similar substances.
WHOs Road Safety Legislation database
This database provides information on road safety legislation in countries around the world. The data has been collected with input from WHO partner organizations around the world The database contains information on legislation around a number of risk factors for road traffic injuries - speed limits, seat belt and child restraint use, helmet use, blood alcohol limits, daytime running lamps, mobile phone use. Information on countries' lead agencies for road safety is also provided.
WHOs Violence and injury prevention
Violence and unintentional injury cause every year a significant amount of deaths, human suffering and disability in the European Region, accounting for about 800,000 deaths (10% of all deaths) and 14% of all disability-adjusted life years (DALYs).
In Europe, WHO advocates to reduce violence and unintentional injury by promoting a public health approach that is based on evidence and on multi-sectoral cooperation. WHO also supports Member States by:
*providing data on the burden of injuries and evidence of what works for prevention;
*helping Member States improve their capacity to strengthen prevention; and
*facilitating the sharing of knowledge about prevention strategies that have proven effective.
Working Party on Accidents and Injuries
The Working Party on Accidents and Injuries supports public health activities that seek to reduce all accidents and injuries in the European Union. This website is targeted at a broad group of interested parties from injury prevention experts to stakeholders, from politicians to European citizens and is supported by DG Health and Consumer Protection of the European Commission.
World Road Safety Network
The members of the network have committed themselves to invest their energy, knowledge and influence to improve road safety throughout the world especially in developing countries.
By working together in partnership members will increase political and public awareness across the world.
The network will support and encourage the delivery of the enforcement led road safety programmes.
