Safe and sustainable mobility are integral to achieving the theme of the 2018 HLPF, ‘Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies.’ As populations and motorization increase, it is the poorest who bear the greatest burden of unsafe roads. The health and life chances of millions are held back by inequitable access to mobility.
This luncheon side event will be an opportunity to discuss key issues, solutions, and steps to reduce the toll of road traffic injuries. It will also focus on measures to improve sustainable mobility in the urban context, and the priority of protecting children and the vulnerable.
