10/05/2018 - UN Road Safety Trust Fund kick-started by FIA Foundation $10M pledge

Every year, more than 1.3 million people die on the world’s roads and the major part of them are pedestrians (particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa).

In this context, the FIA Foundation has pledged a donation of USD$10 million to kick start a new United Nations Road Safety Trust Fund. This initiative has been launched by UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed.

The new UN Fund is aimed to catalyse road safety action across the globe, using donations to help unlock new government and municipal funding and re-focus national road safety budgets towards proven ‘Safe System’ interventions.
