UN Road Safety Fund at the High-Level Meeting on Road Safety

“Today, against a backdrop of compounding climatic, health and geopolitical crises, we have a real chance to act on the urgent and solvable issue of safer roads for all. Over the last year, we have seen how, on the ground, more citizens, countries and companies are joining the United Nations Road Safety Fund’s global partnership – working since 2018 on safer roads for users everywhere.” 

– Jean Todt, UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety


The UN Road Safety Fund is proud to support the historic UN High-level Meeting on Road Safety. Today, we all have a shared responsibility to champion the necessary commitments, sustainable financing contributions and concrete action that can end the road safety crisis and halve road traffic deaths and injuries by 2030. The Fund will take an active role at the UN High-level Meeting on 30 June – 1 July joining leaders from governments, companies, civil society and community networks.

The Fund’s first pledging event on 30 June 2022 at the UN Headquarters will mobilize partners and pledges for high-impact road safety projects in 2022-2025. Road safety is underfunded in most countries – pledges made will be channelled to low- and middle-income countries most in need of support.
