Dialogue Plaform

The Dialogue Platform represents the Safer Africa high level body with a view to ensure a continuous relationship between Africa and Europe.

The Dialogue Platform aims to identify the main needs for road safety and traffic management and consequently foster the adoption of efficient interventions. In doing so it involves international, governmental, financial and research institutions as well as a number of African stakeholders.

A Stakeholders Group, comprising actors not involved in the project as partners, includes African and international members of different natures. These will play a central role in SaferAfrica Dialogue Platform activities. The initial group will be continuously extended during the project.

The Platform is organised according to a Technical and an Institutional level.

The Institutional level, run by a Management Board, includes prominent institutions at international level identified among policy makers, multilateral development banks, other key international Institutions, able to effectively influence the process towards the African road safety improvement. The Management Board operates at strategic level strengthening the capacity of the Technical level to tackle the African Road Safety criticalities.

The Technical level is articulated into Working Groups addressing specific topics and involving governmental and research institutions and stakeholders at European and African levels. Its activities are oriented to the “Safe System” approach and based on four pillars of the project:

The technical level formulates draft policy recommendations on specific issues in order to ensure the compliance with the challenges identified by the African Road Safety Action Plan and the African Road Safety Charter.

The Management Board discusses the draft policy recommendations formulated by the Platform technical level providing feedbacks and eventually fostering their adoption in the existing planning strategic documents or local interventions.
