FIA advocates for road safety in Davos

25 January 2019

The joint Global Road Safety Initiative of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) seeks to address the global challenge of preventing road deaths and injuries with particular emphasis on low- and middle-income countries.

On the call of FIA and WEF, distinguished representatives of the business community, such as UPS, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, Volvo Group, Bosch, Vodafone, Heromoto, Signify, Total, as well as the World Bank, the UNECE, International Road Federation, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the Global Road Safety Partnership and local NGOs have started a dialogue to identify new ways of cooperation in support of government efforts to improve road safety in India.

This new public-private partnership is expected to set an example for accelerating results.

Jean Todt, FIA President and United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety presented the GRSI-RSPI project to the Mobility Stewards and to the Automotive Governors, during the Annual Meetings of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Opening the road safety meeting organised by FIA and WEF in Davos on 23 January, Jean Todt said: “This high toll of road mobility on human lives is unacceptable”. He raised the question if “the current governance structure of road safety is adequate for a transformational change”.
