The United Nations Road Safety Fund has opened a call for proposals
The UNRSF 2020 Call for Proposals is open between 30 October 2020 and 31 January 2021 (23:59 CET). Through this Call, the Fund will disburse USD 4 million to approved projects aimed at reducing road traffic fatalities and injuries:
- Alignment with national priorities, opportunities for synergies and avoiding duplications with other road safety funds and programmes;
- Projects with a significant and sustainable impact on road safety in low- and middle-income countries;
- Partially connect projects with COVID-19 (active mobility, vulnerable road users and speed management etc.); and
- Taking also into account:
1) partnerships and leveraging of other resources, including co-financing;
2) the new UN General Assembly Resolution on Improving Global Road Safety (A/RES/74/299); and
3) the UN Sustainable Development Goals, i.e. cross-cutting issues.
Further information on each participating UN organization’s strategy for the Call for Proposals can be found here.
Established in April 2018, the United Nations Road Safety Fund (UNRSF) aims to help low- and middle-income countries put in place effective national road safety systems in order to (a) substantially curb the number of fatalities and injuries from road crashes, and (b) reduce economic losses resulting from these crashes.
