Safer City Streets Network: 6th Meeting
The ITF Safer City Streets initiative offers a platform for road safety experts to share their experience and develop a global database at city level. A full network meeting will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, on 16-18 October 2019. The agenda will reflect the priorities of the host city, which include pedestrian safety and the role of data in supporting policy change. Similarly to the 4th meeting in London and Manchester, ITF and POLIS will work together to organise the meeting.
The ITF Safer City Streets initiative was launched in October 2016 at the UN Habitat III Conference. Thanks to the support of the FIA Road Safety Grant programme, as well as the support from the International Traffic Safety Data and Analysis Group (IRTAD), it has grown rapidly to include over 40 cities and offers a global database for road safety performance. The initiative's results include the publication of a global road safety benchmark.
Network meetings are organised at least once a year, generally hosted by a member city. Most participants are from local government, road safety research organisations, NGOs and development banks. The previous meeting in Buenos Aires attracted over 90 participants.
