Safe and sustainable mobility is integral to achieving the 2017 HLPF theme ‘Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.’ The poorest bear the greatest burden of unsafe roads. The health and life chances of millions are held back by inequitable access to mobility. Preventable road traffic crashes inflict immense economic costs on countries; huge financial burdens and pressure on health systems; and crushing debt on millions of families, often resulting in lost economic and educational opportunities.

This luncheon side event provides opportunity to discuss key issues and solutions to reduce road traffic injuries. The event will bring together Ministers, UN Permanent Representatives, the UN Special Envoy for Road Safety, international agencies and experts. Please note that pre-drink starts at 12:45pm and the event is scheduled from 1:15 to 2:45pm.
