Seminar Concept

The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) in collaboration with the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Programme (SSATP) is organizing a seminar to address the road safety management in African cities. The seminar Moving People Safely in Citiesis scheduled to take place from 4th to 5th September, 2013, at the United Nations Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This seminar follows on from our 2012 seminar aimed at road safety in cities.

Background and Rationale

More than 1.2 million people die on the world’s roads every year and the injured could be as high as 50 million, with low and middle-income countries accounting for nearly 85 percent of the deaths and 90 percent of the injuries.

The risk of dying as a result of a road traffic injury is highest in Africa, even though Africa is the least motorized of all the regions. Vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists and motorized 2- and 3-wheelers) constitute more than half (52%) of road users killed on the roads, with pedestrians alone being 37%. Whereas a safe public transport system can contribute to creating a safer traffic environment, public transport in the region is not seen as a safe mode of travel.

The growing challenge for cities in Africa

A contributor to an increase in road crashes is Africa’s development trajectory as one of world’s most rapidly growing economic regions. This growth would be accompanied by an increase in vehicle ownership and travel.

It is expected that the number of vulnerable road users in urban areas will rapidly increase, along with the projected rate of urbanization. More than 90% of future population growth will be accounted for by the large cities in the developing countries. In the developing world, Africa has experienced the highest urban growth during the last two decades at 3.5% per year and this rate of growth is expected to hold into 2050.

Projections indicate that between 2010 and 2025, some African cities will account for up to 85% of the population.

While investment towards provision and upkeep of road infrastructure is on the rise, there is still a huge backlog of road rehabilitation work. Funding towards road capacity improvements and enhancement of road service levels is unlikely to be significant. The quality of public transport services in rural and urban Africa is also not likely to improve appreciably.

The Seminar Objective

The main objective of the seminar is to improve road safety management in African cities by promoting a paradigm shift to a people-oriented approach in the planning and provision of transport infrastructure, transport services, and in the formulation and implementation of related transport policies and strategies.

There is a compelling and urgent need to address urban road safety especially considering that more than half of road crash victims are vulnerable road users and that in Africa, their concentration is highest in urban centres. Public transport systems in African cities are not safe, and do not integrate the use of buses, mini-buses and trains with walking, cycling or use of other non-motorized means of transport.

The seminar is primarily aimed at road safety managers from the major cities in Africa. It is appreciated that the success in road safety management cannot be achieved at sub-national level without the involvement of the national structures. The seminar will therefore be attended by national policy level stakeholders, especially from road safety lead agencies, city engineers, heads of city traffic police, the heads of city hospital casualty services, and the heads of the national road safety lead agencies.

Seminar Structure and Content

The seminar is structured around the five pillars of the United Nations Decade of Action. Themes area aimed at: road safety management; city transport infrastructure; public transport services; meeting the needs of road users; and post-crash interventions. A set of formal resolutions will be made at the end of the seminar.

The Addis Ababa Long Short Walk

Among the highglights of the agenda is the Addis Ababa Long Short Walk. The Long Short Walk campaigns for the rights of pedestrians and children on the road to be recognized and urges greater investment in safe footpaths, cycle-ways and crossing points, on streets with lower speed limits, especially around schools. Participants take and record a walk along a chosen path, note pedestrian hazards and log the walk to a central point from where they are uploaded online and combine into one Long Walk, providing a snapshot of streets and journeys all across the world.
