Course on Road Safety Management

Doha, Qatar, 19 November 2019 - 21 November 2019

IRF (Geneva) together with the Qatar Transportation & Traffic Safety Center and Qatar University are pleased to present the International Course on Road Safety Management to be held from 19th to 21st November 2019 in Doha, Qatar.

Managerial and technical capacity weaknesses, combined with lack of political ownership of road safety targets and underperforming infrastructure, present formidable barriers to progress for many low- and middle-income countries.

There is great complexity in effective road safety and collaborating across institutions is needed to achieve effective interventions. In practice, this means managing road safety in a context where different government agencies - Transport, Health, Justice, Interior, Education, Employment, and Finance – share responsibility and stakeholder engagement is key. Initiatives such as the recent adoption of ISO 39001 now allow more active participation by an even wider range of public and private sector actors.

This workshop has been designed for safety professionals who want a theoretical and practical overview of effective road safety institutions and programs. At the end of the workshop, delegates will have an enhanced grasp of the key characteristics of effective road safety management functions, as well as a sharpened focus on managing road safety projects for results.
