Total Foundation to launch a road safety coalition in Tanzania
The nearing end of the Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020) calls on all of us to step up our efforts. The upcoming ministerial meeting, which will be hosted by Sweden in February 2020 and mark the start of a new decade, further offers the opportunity to renew our commitment by bringing to the table concrete action.
Total Foundation strongly believes that partnerships are the key driver of success and long-term impact in the reduction of road accidents. Building on the current momentum that sees road safety high on the African and global agenda, Total Foundation is partnering up with other companies which have road safety at the heart of their activities, to jointly establish a new and innovative road safety coalition in Tanzania.
Total Group has developed a strong expertise in road safety coalitions through the successful Safe Way Right Way initiative and NGO, which was established together with the World Bank, in Uganda, Kenya and Cameroon http://safewayrightway.org/.
The aim of a road safety coalition in Tanzania will be to federate private sector stakeholders to work together, in close collaboration with international institutions, NGOs, and local authorities in order improve road safety via hands-on, impact-oriented and scalable activities.
As a member of the International Road Federation (IRF), Total Foundation is partnering with IRF for the launch of this initiative.
