Evaluating the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020

The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 was first raised by the Commission for Global Road Safety in early 2009. Later that year it was included in the Moscow Declaration (the outcome document of the First Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety) and was formally announced by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, resolving to level and reduce the forecast of global road traffic deaths by 2020.

As the end-date of the Decade of Action approaches, The George Institute is leading an evaluation of the Decade of Action alongside The George Washington University, the World Health Organization and the Mapfre Foundation. The evaluation will be framed around the 8 core objectives defined in the Decade of Action plan, reviewing outcomes and effectiveness of international coordination. Mixed methods are being used including:

  1. Analysis of the data and trends gathered through the global status reports published in 2013, 2015 and 2018 and other global datasets;
  2. An online survey to all interested stakeholders;
  3. Key informant interviews;
  4. Analysis of all the UN Secretary-General reports on road safety published between 2011 and 2019; and
  5. Identification of country-level case studies from peer-reviewed literature.
