GRSF 2017 Annual Report

Overview

GRSF 2017 Annual Report

The objective of the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF), a global partnership program hosted by the World Bank, is to help address the growing crisis of road traffic deaths and injuries in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). GRSF operates across four arenas to deliver funding, knowledge transfer, advocacy, and technical assistance to scale up and improve road safety delivery in LMICs:

  • First, GRSF manages a grants program for approved external organizations and for World Bank-financed projects;

  • Second, we participate in the Bloomberg Philanthropies program, providing road safety infrastructure advice as well as contributions on road safety data systems and road safety advertising;

  • Third, we work in partnership with the World Bank to enhance the work of the World Bank’s transport global practice and improve road safety investments in transport operations in client countries; and, finally, we participate in global leadership, guidance, and advocacy. Because of its work in these arenas, GRSF is justifiably recognized as an effective leader and facilitator of the global road safety agenda.

The GRSF management team is proud to present the annual report for the 2017 fiscal year, including work which heralds major changes in the World Bank’s approach to road safety, and highlights work for key improvements in road safety leadership, management, and delivery across many countries in which GRSF has played a leading role.
