Report Launch Webinar: Guidelines for Conducting Road Safety Data Reviews
- February 23, 2022 - 9:00 am to 10:30 am
Mobility and Transport Connectivity
The Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) and the International Transport Forum (ITF) invite you to the launch of the Guidelines for Conducting Road Safety Data Reviews.
Accurate road safety data are needed to understand road safety challenges in a country, design effective road safety policies, set appropriate targets, and monitor progress. However, many countries are still in the infancy of accurate data collection, analysis, and use (including related crash data systems), and are not necessarily aware of weaknesses in their system, which could prevent them from making sound analyses of their road safety problems.
The Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) and the International Transport Forum (ITF) invite you to the launch of the Guidelines for Conducting Road Safety Data Reviews. Join us to get to know the various aspects of the whole data collection process, such as road crash investigation, reporting, and registration, checking completeness and consistency, storage, and accessibility - as well as analysis and use.
