Road Safety and Sustainable Transports
There is a strong link between an efficient and well-functioning transport system and the growth and development of a region’s economy, and as a result, the improved social conditions of those living there. In many ways transportation is the engine that powers a society and enables its development.
But, despite recent decades of significant improvements in high-income countries road safety remains a big global concern. So big, in fact, that poor road safety is a major obstacle for building prosperity and sustainable development in low- and middle income counties.
Big social and environmental issues are reshaping the idea of what our future society and cities should look like. The transport sector is expected to lead the transformation to safe, silent and sustainable mobility and transportation.
