Road safety

Working with other MDBs on road safety

The EBRD has been working with other multilateral development banks (MDBs) since 2009 on a common approach to road safety issues, with the aim of jointly leveraging our country and regional road safety programmes to help accelerate knowledge transfer, strengthen institutional capacity and scale up road safety investment.

The MDB Road Safety Initiative will put into action our comprehensive Joint Statement that we issued prior to the First Global Ministerial Conference on Global Road Safety in November 2009, to announce our partnership to address the growing public health crisis arising from deaths and injuries on the roads of low and middle-income countries. It will provide a harmonised platform that our client countries and regions and their road safety partners can turn to for sustained support, guidance and exchange of information on good practices.
