The Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety is a network organization of more than 300 NGOs in 100 countries and acts to make the world’s roads safe for all.
We strengthen the voice of the people by supporting NGOs in advocacy for safer roads, victim support and sustainable mobility and advocate at local and global level at the highest levels of decision-making. We put the experiences, and grassroots perspectives first, work strategically and evidence based and believe that meaningful participation of NGOs in the decision making process is a key strategy to halve the number of deaths and fatalities on our roads.
In 2018, the Alliance launched the Africa Chapter of the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety (Africa Chapter). With 83 member NGOs representing 31 countries in the African region to date, the Africa Chapter provides not only a platform to further strengthen civil society in Africa and empower its role, but to also address the regions and NGOs’ distinct challenges and needs.
The Alliance Africa Chapter aims to empower, strengthen and support local African NGOs work in road safety, and ensure that they are meaningfully engaged in reaching the target of a 50% reduction in road traffic related injuries and fatalities set for the new Decade of Action for Road Safety, 2021-2030.
The Africa Chapter works under the umbrella of the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety and its strategic plan and governance. Its work adheres to the strategies of the Global Alliance’s three action pillars: 1) networking and sharing, 2) advocacy and accountability and 3) capacity building.
