In 2020, the third global ministerial conference on road safety will be held in Stockholm, Sweden.

Achieving Global Goals

Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety

Every year, 1.35 million deaths occur on the world’s roads according to the World Health Organization (WHO). This makes road crashes the eighth leading cause of death. The goal for the UN is set to halve the number of deaths and injuries resulting from road traffic accidents between 2010 and 2020. To reduce the fatality rate, more investments in road safety are required.

In 2020, the third global high-level conference on road safety will be held in Stockholm, Sweden. It will mark the conclusion of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety and set a global agenda for the next decade.

Minister-led delegations from more than 80 countries are expected to attend as well as representatives from the industry, the science community and international institutions and organizations.

Volvo Group is closely involved as a member of the High-level Consultative Committee for the conference. 

The conference will provide a valuable opportunity to learn from one another’s experiences in order to save more lives both globally and locally.
