Data for Road Incident Visualization, Evaluation and Reporting (DRIVER)

GRSF led the major effort in expanding the road safety management capacity of relevant institutions, by providing new technologies to collect, manage and analyze crash data, through the Data for Road Incident Visualization, Evaluation and Reporting (DRIVER) open-source system.  The Initiative provided the opportunity to adapt and use innovative modern technologies to address road safety risks in urban environments related to excessive speed limits, mixed traffic conflicting situations as well as safety of vulnerable road users.

Road Safety Screening & Appraisal Tool

The World Bank’s new Environmental and Social Framework (ESF) addresses traffic and road safety under Standard 4, Community Health and Safety, which requires that all of our projects avoid or minimize road safety risks and impacts. This applies not just to the communities where the project is being done, but also project workers and road users. Any project with potential road safety implications must develop measures and plans to address these risks.

Introducing a powerful new tool

To help implement this, a powerful new resource, the Road Safety Screening and Appraisal Tool (RSSAT), is now available to Bank teams, and will soon be to other development practitioners. The RSSAT complements the Good Practice Note (GPN) with guidance on road safety in investment projects, prepared by the World Bank’s Transport Global Practice and the Global Road Safety Facility. With the tool, project teams can evaluate road safety performance based on existing conditions and screen for safety improvement opportunities in road and roadside infrastructure. It is possible to estimate fatality rates under scenarios with and without the project, as well as the associated economic costs. In the following months, RSSAT will be available to governments, development agencies and researchers in general through an interactive web platform.

Global Practice Note

Good Practice Note: Environment & Social Framework for IPF Operations Road Safety

With the development of innovative pioneering knowledge products, the Road Safety Team is improving the Bank’s internal processes by supporting operational teams with vital contributions: The Global Practice Note (GPN) on Road Safety provides guidance to World Bank staff on how to support the Borrowers’ efforts to improve road safety on World Bank supported projects to meet the requirements of the respective World Bank Environmental and Social Standard – ESS4.

The GPN articulates a holistic systematic approach to road safety, embodying in the ‘Safe System’ approach with practical directions. It delivers practical steps towards the innovative approach broadly derived from Vision Zero that sets a long-term vision for road systems to be free of deaths and debilitating injuries.

Question 2

GRSF supports creation of Occupational Road Risk Toolkit

Supported by the European Bank of Reconstruction & Development (EBRD) and financed by the UK Aid through GRSF, an international team has created the Occupational Road Risk Toolkit – a structured e-learning program in which fleet managers, drivers, and motorcycle riders can receive tailored content.

This platform contains resources and free e-learning modules for different stakeholders to help manage risk across numerous road safety challenges. With this innovative tool, EBRD wants to improve the quality of management and vehicle fleet as well as the way in which road networks are used.
