United Nations: Road safety in Ban Ki-moon’s Post-2015 recommendations.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
The ‘Safe Roads for All’ report outlines a global target for reducing road fatalities post-2015.
People around the world have been joining the Long Short Walk which calls for road safety to be a post-2015 development priority.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has released his recommendations for the Post-2015 development agenda which include road safety among key public health actions. In a major breakthrough for the campaigning carried out by Make Roads Safe, confronting road traffic injury is included in the Secretary General’s report alongside eradicating AIDS, Malaria and tackling non-communicable diseases.

The UN Secretary General’s report outlines the “emerging vision” for the global development agenda beyond 2015 that will replace the Millennium Development Goals when they expire. The report highlights a number of “transformative and mutually reinforcing actions” applicable to all countries. Improving health is one such action area, and the report includes reducing the burden of road traffic injury among the priorities. Other key public health priorities include: addressing universal health-care coverage; eradicating malaria and realising a future free from AIDS and tuberculosis; and combating non-communicable diseases.

Globally, road injury has become a severe health burden for young people – and particularly for young men. It is the number one cause of death for young people aged 15-29 and the second biggest killer of men aged 30-40 after HIV/AIDS.

The inclusion of road traffic injury in the UN Secretary General’s report represents a success for the ongoing advocacy and campaigning push by Make Roads Safe calling for road safety to be part of the Post-2015 development goals.

In its ‘Safe Roads for All’ report launched earlier this year, the campaign and the Commission for Global Road Safety outlined the call for road safety to be recognised and included in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals framework. The report recommended the inclusion of a specific global fatality reduction target of 50% by 2030 within the Post-2015 goals. The target would be consistent with the current objective of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, to ‘stabilise and then reduce’ global road traffic fatalities by 2020.

In support of this call, ‘The Long Short Walk’, a worldwide social media campaign has been gaining momentum. Around the world communities, groups and members of the public have been taking part in Long Short Walk events, sharing their photos and videos and calling for road safety to be included in the post-2015 agenda. The Long Short Walk is being led by the Make Roads Safe campaign together with the family of Nelson Mandela, whose great-granddaughter Zenani Mandela was killed in a road crash aged 13. People taking part in the Long Short Walk have also been voting for ‘better roads and transport’ in ‘MyWorld’, the UN’s global public survey for Post-2015.

The inclusion of road safety in the UN Secretary General’s report is a significant step forward for the campaign and will provide a strong platform to continue pushing for the issue to be part of the eventual set of development goals. However, there is much work still to be done as negotiations over the goals between Member States at the United Nations will continue in earnest through the rest of this year and during 2014.

The UN Secretary General’s report will provide an influential contribution to the discussions and negotiations of Member States in charting a way forward Post-2015. It has been submitted to the forthcoming 68th Session of the UN General Assembly due to open in September.
